Taco Tuesday has to be my favorite day of the week – and the main reason is this.

THIS, friends, is the chicken taco. Corn tortilla, seasoned chicken, onion, and cilantro – topped with Tapatio and paired with a Corona. Here’s to you Mr. “I-invented-the-chicken-taco”! Thank you for all your hard work…

    I remember seineg this a while back and I think I just filed it in the back of my brain, thinking, I buy the packaged stuff, I won’t need it. Well, tonight I needed this recipe! I had almost all the ingredients (no red pepper or oregano), but it turned out REALLY yummy, but a bit on the spicy side for me. I will definitely file this in my recipe box and use it again and not the packaged stuff anymore!!! Thanks for all the great recipes!!! All the ones I’ve used are super-yummy!!!
