Easy Chicken Tacos (Low Fat if You Choose Soft Shell over Hard)

I try to avoid cooking with pre-made spices and sauces (some are better than others), so this recipe is based off my re-interpretation of all the good things a taco should be: spicy, tasty, moist, and most of all packed with delicious veggies; using chicken and what I can find in my pantry at a moments notice. You could even simply top a bowl of lettuce and tomatoes with the taco meat and eat it as a taco salad - that would be very low fat!
