Chicken TacosGuys, I don’t know how I got away without sharing this recipe with you guys yet. I know everyone is probably Mexican-ed out from Cinco de Mayo – but just trust me. This is one you want to Pin, or bookmark, or whatever it is you kids are doing these days!

Our family friend Stephanie introduced me to them a few years ago now. We went through a phase where I made them, like every week, for months. Needless to say, I kind of burnt ourselves out on them. Not to mention, they’re not exactly the healthiest option in my repitoire. But, oh are they good!

We always fry our own corn tortillas – but these are different. They’re almost deep fried. The crispiest taco you’ll ever find! And they retain their crispiness – even cold, after sitting on the cooling rack for 2 hours. Not that I speak from experience or anything..

And, they certainly could be tweaked to be healthier. The filling itself isn’t too bad – with some whole wheat tortillas, or even flour – your calorie count would come down significantly. But the fried shells are really worth trying once!

    Do you have a recipe for the black beans? They look amazing and I am always looking for side dishes with Mexican, can never seem to find any we like. Would be lovely if you shared 🙂

    WOW Tide&Thyme, don’t know where you’re getting your recipes, but as a latina, I’d say you’re cooking Mexican! Your recipes are actually very authentic-very tasty. I made your pulled pork with green salsa, very tasty- and I’m looking at your chicken tacos, they’re very similar to the ones I make. Keep it up, I really enjoy getting your e-mails

    What kind of cheese did you use? And besides the black beans what other sides go good with the chicken tacos? I can’t wait to make them! They looks so delicious!
