TexMex Chicken Tacos - Tacos de Pollo TexMex

I didn’t have  lot of time neither the energy to prepare Tinga de Pollo or Cochinita Pibil de Pollo, like I had planned (in my mind)so I came out with this Easy and Tasty Chicken Tacos Tex-Mex Recipe.

If by any chance you are looking for a quick and easy recipe to feed a big crowd, this is a great option. If you are making it for a party, try to use small corn tortillas, it’s nicer presentation and are almost a bite size. In Mexico we call those small tortillasTortillas para Taco.” In fact in Mexico is very rare to buy or make tacos with a regular size tortilla , although isn’t very easy to find Tortilla para Taco outside Mexico; lucky me, I found them here in MTL.
