Tex-Mex food is spicy and delicious and is a common meal preparation for our family. Mexico is only 65 miles from us and it's culture is a definite influence on our way of cooking. Making taco's is second nature to me and as easy as 1,2,3. Chicken is a nice substitute for beef and I am sure you will agree that these Chicken taco's are delicioso!

Step-by-Step
