Tequila Lime Chicken Tacos – Supper for a Steal

I whipped up these tacos on a whim one day to boost a little extra flavor into our grilled chicken tacos. The marinade is easy to put together and best yet I usually have all the ingredients on hand. The flavor isn’t overwhelming, but chicken always tastes better marinated in citrus I think.

Tacos make both the husband and I happy. Grilled tacos make me especially happy because I don’t have to cook!

Now as I sit here after dinner writing this post I’m hungry all over again. Guess what, I’m craving tacos.
