Grilled Chicken Tacos w/ Spiced Mayo & Avocado Salsa

Phew! What a name right? Try saying that 10 fast, hehe! My hubby and I made these for dinner last weekend and not only were they “out of this world” tasty, but these got the title of “best taco ever”. Sure, we gave these that title ourselves, but still….I have had tons of tacos in my 27 years of life, so that is impressive, right?? 😉

With grilling season among us, these are definitely a must try! We enjoyed these with our Avocado Lime Rice and Mexican Street Corn. YUM!!



  • 1/2 tsp grated lime zest
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin, divided
  • Salt/Pepper
  • 1 lb boneless chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch cubes

  2. Place chicken into bowl and toss until coated.
  3. Thread chicken and onion pieces onto skewers.
