Recipe: Chicken Tacos

Alright, forgive me for going a little bit basic here. I think we can all agree, however, that there’s probably never been a time when someone’s asked, “How do chicken tacos sound for dinner,”and you’ve retreated in repulsion. They’re well-balanced in the nutrient department, satiating but not too heavy, and avocado is involved. What’s not to love?

Hint: sub flour tortillas with corn for a gluten-free version.
