Each bite is filled with intense flavor, you can fill them with anything and everything imaginable, and they’re just downright delicious! There doesn’t need to be much explanation as to why they’re one of my favorite foods! Being from San Diego (see my favorite restaurants here) has turned me into somewhat of a taco connoisseur, so after I moved to Florida (see my favorite restaurants here), I had a hard time finding a taco that I deemed Taco Tuesday worthy – so, I started making my own! From carne asada, to Beer Battered fish, grilled fish, veggie/vegan tacos, and my amazing pollo asada tacos that are on this blog post!

    Instructions
     

    Directions:

    • Add all ingredients to chicken, mix well to combine. Cover and let sit in refrigerator for at least 30 mins to 1 hour. Set grill to medium heat. Place chicken on grill, dispose of remaining juice and vegetables from marinade, and cook about 7 min per side or until fully cooked and grill marks appear. Note: to do this on a stovetop, cook on a nonstick or cast-iron skillet with a neutral oil until golden brown and slightly crispy on each side. Let cool to the touch and chop into desired pieces for tacos.
    • While the chicken cooks, make the mango salsa by combining all prepared ingredients. Make the chipotle crema by adding the ingredients into a small food processor or blender, or very finely chop the chipotles and add them to the yogurt along with the additional sauce. Mix well to combine, set aside.
    • To make your tacos, stack 2 corn tortillas or 1 flour tortilla. Add the pollo asada, mango salsa, diced onions and freshly chopped cilantro if using along with a dollop of chipotle crema. Sahtein & Enjoy!
