Foodie Friday: Easy Cheddar Chicken Tacos

I don't know if I shared this with yall, but my oldest son should win the Pickiest Eater Award!  In an attempt to give him something he likes without slaving in the kitchen too long, I grabbed 3 chicken tenders and diced them, seasoned them with ground cumin, sea salt, onion and garlic powder.  Fried it in a little olive oil until cooked.  A great way to check if the chicken is cooked, is by trying to slice it with your cooking spoon.  If it is still pink, then it needs more time, if it is white and tender of course you know that it is ready.

 I knew I couldn't go wrong, with the tortillas which I preheated before I added the cooked chicken and cheese.
 I rolled them, seam down, and placed them in a 350 degree oven for a few minutes until the cheese was melted.  I seriously thought this was gonna be a #fail.  I cut each taco into 3's and gave them to both of my sons.  The little one went in on those tacos like there was no tomorrow.  But, the older one looked them over and then had the nerve to ask me what it was.  I was sure he wasn't going to eat it!  His answer to this is always, "I don't like it" and I always ask, "How do you know you don't like it if you don't try it?"

I thought I was going to have to do this:

But, he actually took a bite and finished what I gave him and even asked for more!
He is safe for today!  Just kidding!

That's funny! Our kids know better. My response when they say they don't like something is, "Well this is for dinner, if you don't like it, I hope you like breakfast." They never turn down food anymore. I know, I'm evil...
