Traditionally, Mexican food is bright, fresh, spicy and perfect to enjoy on any weeknight, but depending on how you mix it up, it’s not always the best option. Not to worry, I’ve got you covered with these amazingly delicious chicken tacos that are perfectly spices. I love using rotisserie chickens… they are pretty amazing. They’re delightfully convenient. All you have to do to prepare one is pick it up from the store and carve it. I love using the chicken breast for perfectly cooked street tacos. Here’s one recipe we’re loving in my household.
