Blackened Chicken Tacos with Strawberry Salsa

Morgan | August 8, 2017

Taco Tuesday is our favorite weekly tradition and we always try a new restaurant or taco recipe. Thanks to Taco Tuesday, every week is a mini fiesta and this week I think I’ve found my go-to taco! A fresh, tender blackened chicken taco with a sweet and tangy strawberry salsa. It is SO delicious and pairs perfectly with a refreshingly spicy strawberry jalapeno margarita.

Don’t worry if you make too much strawberry salsa. It’s so good you could eat it with just a spoon or pair it with tortilla and sweet potato chips for a flawless compliment to your tacos. This tender blackened chicken taco with strawberry salsa can also be turned into an amazing salad! Just substitute your tortilla for lettuce and you have an energizing and tasty meal.
