Corn tortillas are quickly charred then filled with shredded chicken and a fresh avocado citrus salsa. Your family will love this easy chicken taco recipe.
As our citrus-themed weekly meal plan continues, I’m excited to share this quick, delicious and easy recipe just in time for #TacoTuesday! Made with just a few fresh ingredients, you are only minutes away from transforming yesterday’s Asian Citrus Slow Cooker Shredded Chicken into Chicken Tacos with Avocado Citrus Salsa.
Topped with bright lime juice, creamy avocado and juicy oranges, every bite of these slightly-charred chicken tacos are going to send your taste buds on over drive.
As always, I recommend slightly warming the corn tortillas over a stove-top flame by flipping them with metal tongs a few seconds per side until lightly charred and pliable.
The end result? A fresh twist on taco night that you’ll be making again and again. These chicken tacos with avocado citrus salsa are going to be a huge hit with the whole family.
Stay tuned for Thursday where I’ve got our final recipe for this week’s citrus-themed meal plan. If you haven’t yet, it’s not too late to print out this grocery list so you can join in on the fun!
