Chicken Tacos with Tequila Mango Salsa!

Chicken tacos with Tequila Mango Salsa! Its not a good tuesday unless there are Tacos! Todays Taco Tuesday Recipe is my Chicken Tacos with a Tequila Mango Salsa! In honor of summer I am not only going to provide you all with your Freebie Tuesday Posts but I am also going to have Taco Tuesdays every other week! (hopefully my family wont get tired of tacos!) We are starting this tuesday off with a bang as it is mango week! Nothings better then fresh mangos, spicy peppers, and juicy chicken on a corn tortilla. I recommend making the salsa ahead of time so you can spend your day lounging in the sun rather than working in the kitchen! Ingredients: Chicken Marinade ¼ cup mango salsa 3 tablespoons of orange juice 2 tablespoons of tequila Mango Salsa 1 ½ mangos 1 jalapeno (or green bell pepper) 1 Red bell Pepper 2 tablespoons of Tequila 2 tablespoons of orange juice ½ tablespoon of lemon juice (or one squeezed lemon) Prep Time: 30 minutes (plus marinating time) Cook Time: 15-20 minutes Instructions: Mango Salsa 1. First start by cutting your mango and bell peppers for your salsa. You are going to want to cut your mango and peppers into small pieces so it is easier to eat. For how to cut your mango look to

Pineapple Mango Margaritas

 As you can see I sliced my mango very thin vertically and then chopped it into smaller pieces after that. 01464b63af1010bf3a82b0d618c0240484a33e0b1e 2. As for the peppers it’s the same idea of dicing them into small cubes so they can easily mix with the salsa. Be VERY careful with how much jalapeno you put into your salsa, if you do not like spicy food use a green bell pepper instead. Also to avoid extra heat make sure you remove all the seeds. Finally if you are cutting a Jalapeno and have sensitive skin I recommend wearing gloves, as the Jalapeno is so spicy that it can actually burn your skin if not careful! 015493ec1cc4ed0bcab9bca41259a5eb5d0d68ba32 3. When you have all of your peppers and mangos diced place them into a bowl, add two tablespoons of tequila as well as 2 tablespoons of orange juice, and ½ tablespoon of lemon juice, stir with a spoon then wrap with plastic wrap until needed. (Must be refrigerated!) 0181d5bf7c501801db17e1b7e64cb1323eada4821b Grilled Chicken 1. Now prepare your chicken by getting a gallon sized zip lock bag. Add your raw chicken, ¼ cup of your mango salsa, 3 tablespoons of orange juice, and 2 tablespoons of tequila. Let marinade for as long as you want. (preferably at least 1 hour) 0114d2f3a532e19d86bdddbb4b8618283095625c60 2. Its grill time now! After letting your chicken marinade take it out and place the chicken on the grill. Don’t throw away the zip lock bags contents though. Grill chicken until it is less than two minutes from being done (don’t forget to flip it a couple times!). 01dbb6477bf4886ec3e58b6372964f75067060f102 3. Now take the juice in the bag and pour it over your chicken, also try to get the mango salsa to sit on top of the chicken, this last step helps the chicken get a nice juicy flavor! 01be05ec323b33ccbe11af252c8ea65d66f61a833a 4. Once your chicken is fully cooked (at least 165 degrees Fahrenheit) remove it from the grill and slice it thinly to easily fit into tacos. 011217bb6d1e26506ad2b875445f1907a5c4afc972 5. Layer toppings onto warm corn tortilla and pair with a side of black beans and you’re good to go. 0150fe1c13b74d65c35864e6106ca588b6e97c9b34 6.
