Basic Summer Chicken Tacos

Tacos are everyone’s basic go to meal and I love them! The reason tacos are so good is because you can make up so many varieties, making them “healthy” or “not-so-healthy” depending on what your taste buds are craving that moment. They are the perfect meal for social gatherings or quick last minute meal to put together for the family. I personally like to pair mine with a margarita. If I’m going to have a margarita, I like to make a taco more on the healthier side to compensate for the calories. These tacos are so basic and simple, only 3 ingredients that you probably have in your pantry right now! How do you like to eat your tacos? If you try this recipe let me know what you think!
