Chicken Street Tacos with Guacamole and Chipotle Aioli

August 14, 2017

 

Chicken street tacos are one those easy dinner meals that comes together so quick.  It's such a healthy dinner idea and it's kid friendly too because you can easily make a little quesadilla out of the same ingredients.  

 

 

I cook southwest style food quite a bit.  I love anything in the taco and salsa world, really. But street tacos are kind of this newish trendy thing.  I mean thanks because they are so easy!  A street taco is basically a pretty plain taco.  Meat, a little salsa and maybe some cabbage slaw or cilantro.  I think of it as the world's healthiest taco.

 

 

 

 

Does your family like tacos?  What are some of your favorite toppings you just cant live without?  Mine is definitely pico de gallo.  In the summer it's alway in my fridge at all times for easy snacking.

 

 

I try to keep certain items in my fridge at all times for the nights when I need something quick and easy to make.  Something that I like to do is keep chicken on hand (always), frozen, so I can throw it in the fridge to defrost for later in the week since it does take a few days.  

 

 

Have you ever seen a taco wrapped with two shells?  Did you know that's actually for when all the filling falls out of the first one, you have a tortilla to catch it but instead of getting all over your plate it goes and makes a new taco!  Love it.

 

 

These chicken street tacos  take about 45 minutes to make.  Since it's a street taco they are pretty basic. It consists of seasoned chicken, easy guacamole, pico de gallo, a spice aioli sauce and cilantro.  I make this fresh pico de gallo about every other week, I use it in so many of my dishes, it's really versatile if you are cooking anything southwest.  The pico really brightens up food and gives it that extra boom pow kick of flavor.  You can grab my Perfect Pico de Gallo recipe here.
