Taco Week: Grilled Chicken Tacos

C – Tacos!

I love tacos. I don’t know why, but I get really excited when I make tacos. I am not sure if it’s because they taste good. Or, that they’re really easy to make. Or, that I can load them up with whatever I want.

It’s probably all of the above.

Tacos are such a simple thing to make.

All you really need is four ingredients for a good tasting taco. A good tortilla shell, some sort of protein that is seasoned well, some kind of fresh vegetable that has a good crunch to it and a good salsa. Of course, cheese can be added too if you want.

The most important part about a good taco is you can taste every ingredient. That’s my opinion anyway.

Salsa Verde recipe

These chicken tacos were plain and simple, but really great. I used to load up my tacos, thinking they would taste better that way. But, only having a few ingredients can be really delicious, too.

I guess simple is better for tacos. Sometimes.
