Grilled Chili Lime Chicken Tacos

Grilled Chili Lime Chicken Tacos

"Probably the best recipe for Grilled Chicken Tacos you will ever try! Spicy chicken with a zesty avocado salsa and drizzled with sour cream dressing is your ultimate gluten-free, low-carb summer grill recipe. Ready in 30 minutes... For the taco – use a nice large lettuce leaf such as romaine (Cos) or iceberg to place the filling into or use a low-carb tortilla. Grilled chicken tacos can be cooked on a grill pan on the stove top instead of on a grill or BBQ. Cook for 3-4 minutes per side on medium-high heat."

Skip the chili or add less to reduce the spiciness, especially if cooking for kids (or add more for a bigger kick)
Grilled chicken tacos can be cooked on a grill pan on the stove top instead of on a grill or BBQ. Cook for 3-4 minutes per side on medium-high heat.
Instead of using a jalapeño pepper, bottled jalapeños can be used. Substitute 1/4 cup of bottled jalapeño for 1 chili.
For the taco – use a nice large lettuce leaf such as romaine (Cos) or iceberg to place the filling into
Try low-carb tortillas for a more filling option. Note that these tortillas are not usually gluten-free.
If using low-carb tortillas, they can be heated in a dry hot pan for a minute or so per side.

This is the perfect meal for summertime and I love that it's so easy to make! I don't recall ever having lime in my tacos and I've never been much of a lime kinda gal, but I've never met a taco I didn't like or want to gobble up. The sour cream cilantro lime mixture sounds super flavorful and rich at the same time and I'm betting it'll be amazing with the rest of the ingredients and some homemade corn tortillas. Yum!

These look so good! I love chili lime seasoning.
