In The Pretty Kitchen- Street Tacos

I LOVE Mexican food, seriously it is the one thing that I could never give up and I could also eat it daily for the rest of my life, especially street tacos. Since I cannot eat them everyday I make sure that when I make them, they are dang good.

Today's recipe is for street tacos, they are super yummy and super easy to make.

1- Place meat in a prep bowl, and squeeze lime juice onto meat and toss
2- Sprinkle garlic powder, salt and pepper on meat, making sure it is evenly coated
3- Cook meat in a skillet or a grill pan
4- While chicken is cooking; mix diced onion and cilantro for the topping and set aside
5- To heat tortillas, place 4 tortillas in between 2 wet paper towels and microwave for 1 minute. Repeat until all tortillas are warm.

I like to serve these up with pinto beans and tortilla chips, or even rice for an awesome dinner. 

Notes- This recipe can serve more or less, it really depends on how big you make the tacos. Any meat can be used, I just really love beef. The lime juice and salt are flavor enhancers, but you only need a teeny sprinkle of salt, or it will overpower the taco.

I installed a Pinterest hover button so now it is super easy to pin these posts :)
