How to Make Chicken Tacos

The ingredients for these tacos probably look pretty basic and familiar, but the chicken is where the flavor gets kicked up a notch! Unlike traditional taco meats with the classic Spanish flavors of cumin and garlic, we’re using BBQ sauce on our chicken to give it a smokier and sweeter flavor. The result is dang delicious and my mouth is watering just thinking about it! With your BBQ chicken ready to go, you simply build your tacos to your liking with your favorite toppings.
