Mexican may just be one of our all time favorite foods. Once or twice a week … or more. It is easy, convenient, delicious, easy to find ingredients and most importantly spicy <– my favorite.

If I have to choose one of my favorites from all things Mexican then it will surely be TACOS. Something about holding a warm overstuffed tortilla with delicious fillings and garnishes and taking a bite trying to be careful not to make a mess. Sorry forks and spoons, I love ya but hands are magical!
Chicken, the humble protein is always a staple in my freezer – makes an appearance at least 3 nights a week. It thaws quick and is great in all types of cuisines and cooking methods. As you have guessed by now, chicken tacos are always one of my go-to. A good chicken taco needs a well seasoned chicken. Store-bought seasoning for chicken tacos are easy but homemade taco seasoning for chicken is cheaper and totally customizable as per your taste —> less spicy / more spicy / less salt / less oniony …….. you get the idea.
