Hello Taco Tuesday.

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.

Be it fajitas, nachos, tacos, quesadillas or even the simplest creamy guac or fire roasted salsa, it’s just too darn delicious. 

There is something about the combination of spices and ingredients makes it so amazingly delicious, right? You will be able to find a huge selection of Mexican recipes out here. Some of my favorites include –

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.
