If you haven’t guessed by now I love Mexican Food! I can eat it everyday! One of my favorite Mexican dishes are chicken tacos. I love them wrapped in fresh warm flour tortillas. The chicken filling is real easy to make, if you’re pinched for time you can even use taco seasoning packets to give it that Mexican flavor. But I like to make it from scratch and sometimes I experiment a bit with the ingredients. Recently I came up with these Margarita Chicken Tacos, they are delicious!
What makes these Margarita Chicken Tacos different is that the chicken is marinated in, you guessed it, tequila and lime juice; hence the name Margarita Chicken Tacos! They really are easy to make and are too yummy!
I marinate the chicken about an hour before I sauté it. I serve it fresh wrapped in warm flour tortillas and topped with chopped cilantro, cheese, sour cream, and salsa. It’s a complete meal in a tortilla.
Here’s the recipe. I hope you’ll love it as much as we do.
