Tacos with Tequila Lime Chicken and Fiery Green Salsa

Tacos with Tequila Lime Chicken and Fiery Green Salsa

This is a great recipe for easy summer entertaining!

Serves 6


1/4 cup reposado tequila
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
3 cloves garlic, minced
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
3 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
2 tablespoons olive oil
Fresh corn tortillas
Fiery Green Salsa


Combine the tequila, lime juice, orange juice, chili powder, jalapeno, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper in a large bowl. Add the sliced chicken breast and stir well together. Chill for 1 to 2 hours.

Preheat an oven to 400°F.  Wrap the tortillas in foil and warm in the oven, 10 minutes.

Warm the olive oil in a large frying pan over medium high heat.  Add the drained chicken and cook, stirring, until golden and slightly firm to the touch, 6 to 10 minutes.

To serve, spoon the chicken into the warm tortillas and top with the salsa.
