Chicken Tacos

This recipe came from my ex-brother in law. (My sisters first husband). It's a yummy way to make chicken tacos, if not a little fattening because they're fried in oil. But, it's an occasional splurge.

About a pound of cooked shredded chicken (I usually boil it)
1/2 onion diced
1 medium tomato diced
1/4 c. mayonnaise
pepper to taste
seasoning salt to taste
garlic powder to taste
1 package of corn tortillas (I usually just buy the 36 count pack and see how many tacos I can get out of the mixture)
1-2 cups vegetable oil

Mix together all ingredients except tortillas and oil.
Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium high heat until it's very hot. Prepare taco's by scooping about 1/4 cup of the mixture into each tortilla, fold in half, and using tongs set a taco in the oil. Hold it straight up until it holds it's shape, then fry each side in the oil as well, to your desired crispness. Drain on paper towel, salt if desired.
