Avocado and Grilled Chicken Street Tacos

Mexican Street Tacos are one of my favorite foods! This version includes marinated grilled chicken thighs and creamy avocados. They’re brimming with bright flavors and they’re so easy to make. I frequently serve these tacos to guests and they always get compliments!

Mexican Street Tacos with Flavorful Grilled Chicken
I love this chicken taco recipe not only because they taste amazing, but also because it’s one of those easy to throw together recipes and you can also get a head start it a few hours in advance with the marinating.

If you want to go all out, you can serve them with carne asada tacos as well. I love getting each kind when I get them on the street in Mexico or in restaurants, so one of these days I’m going to feel ambitious and make all three at once (chicken, carne asada and carnitas).
I guess that will just have to be the menu for my next party. That sounds like a great plan especially considering it’s finally starting to warm up again.
