Easy Chicken Tacos Recipe
I think tacos are one of my very favorite meals. I love that you can feed a crowd with relatively affordable ingredients, and that everyone around the table can customize their plate according to what they prefer.
These BBQ Chicken Tacos are a tangy twist on the classic Spanish meal. My brother in law made them for my family years ago and now we eat them all.the.time. This recipe is simple, quick and downright amazing!
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!
How to Make BBQ Chicken Tacos
Bake – Start by baking your chicken strips according to the directions on the package.
Tortillas – I strongly recommend making homemade tortillas for these bbq chicken tacos. And frankly for any other recipe that calls for them. If you do, whip them up while your chicken is baking and throw them in a tortilla keeper.
BBQ Sauce – My favorite barbecue sauce is Sweet Baby Ray’s. Just dip your chicken into your favorite BBQ sauce and place it in your warm tortilla.
Toppings – With your BBQ chicken ready to go, you simply build your tacos to your liking with your favorite toppings. I like to using tomatoes, lettuce, a delicious blend of cheeses, sour cream and guacamole. Make the tortilla your canvas and create a beautiful work of art with your ingredients.
