Spicy Pan Grilled Chicken And Avocado Tacos
My family prefer eating chicken and avocado for a serving. The reason is simple. They pair perfectly with each other and come out tasty, flavorful and impressive, too. And, this spicy pan grilled chicken and avocado tacos are now one of the most beloved foods of my family. My kids have love for these tacos at any time of the year, especially scorching days of summer. “They just taste so good!”, as they quickly commented.
These chicken and avocado tacos are also defined by a creamy and flavorful cilantro lime sauce (dressing). It’s a mix of sour cream (or Greek Yogurt or Mayo), lime juice, cilantro, garlic and salt and pepper (to taste). Generously drizzled over the tacos, it makes the food tastier, and more flavorful and impressive. Who can say no to them? I know that I can’t.
If you have craving for chicken tacos, you should never miss these for meals. I love it for both daily meals and small parties. When I served it at family weekend gathering, both kids and adults gave them a nod. They are appealing main courses, making the meal more complete. Let’s give them a try!
