Spicy Chicken Tacos

by Peter Fehr 29 May 2023


Spicy Canadian Chicken Tacos are a delightful fusion of Mexican and Canadian flavors, creating a unique and delicious dish. These tacos feature tender, juicy chicken breasts seasoned with a flavorful "KICKIN' CHICKEN RUB".

The chicken breasts are grilled to perfection, imparting a smoky and charred taste that enhances the overall flavor profile. The "KICKIN' CHICKEN RUB" adds a spicy and savory kick to the chicken, making it a standout ingredient in these tacos.

To assemble the tacos, the grilled chicken is thinly sliced and placed on warm flour tortillas. The tacos are then topped with refreshing shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, crunchy red onions, and aromatic cilantro. A sprinkle of shredded cheddar cheese adds a creamy and cheesy element to the dish.

These Spicy Canadian Chicken Tacos offer a harmonious blend of flavors, combining the boldness of the "KICKIN' CHICKEN RUB" with the freshness of the taco toppings. The heat from the rub, along with the vibrant textures and colors of the vegetables, creates a visually appealing and palate-pleasing experience.

Whether enjoyed as a main course, a fun party dish, or a quick weeknight meal, these Spicy Canadian Chicken Tacos are sure to satisfy your cravings for a flavorful and spicy taco adventure.
