Everyone knows and loves tacos al pastor, carnitas tacos, and birria tacos. But what about chicken tacos? In this blog post, we share three tips to enjoy perfect chicken tacos!
1. Be Playful With Your Salsas
The beauty of Mexican food is that every dish is unique. And we don’t mean just that grilled chicken is different from tortas. That’s obvious. With Mexican food, two people can have the same dish, and enjoy completely different experiences. The secret is salsas. Salsas can make any dish spicier, fresher, or simply more interesting. When you eat chicken tacos, experiment with salsas (red, green, pico de gallo, or whatever is available) until you find your signature combination.
2. Use Soft Tortillas
Look, we don’t have anything against hard shell tacos. But we really believe that if you are used to hard sell tacos, you should try a chicken taco with a warm, soft corn tortilla. This is the type of tortilla most Mexicans prefer, and with good reason: it’s inviting, cozy, and it’s also the perfect foil for the texture of chicken. Add the salsa of your choice (see above), and treat yourself to a delicious taco, one of the greatest pleasures in life!
3. Avocado Is Your Friend
No doubt, avocado is one of the MVPs of Mexican cuisine. A couple of slices of avocado or a dollop of guacamole can elevate any dish and turn it into something delightful and surprising. Chicken tacos are no exception. Plus, chicken and avocado are a great pairing from many points of view. Both are healthy foods, their textures make for an interesting combination, not to mention that the warmth of grilled chicken and the freshness of avocado are a match made in tasty heaven!
