I love the versatility of tacos! You an go super simple with ground beef, cheese, lettuce and tomato or you can make street tacos with some shredded chicken, onions, and cilantro. You can make hundreds of different salsas, use all sorts of meats or no meat at all. I wanted to make a creamy sauce for tacos this time, so I came up with Creamy Cilantro Lime Chicken Tacos – and they were a hit!
I have said it many many times but I’m going to say it again – if you can make a roux you can make any sort of sauce your heart desires. If you have butter, flour, chicken broth and heavy cream you are golden. Then you just add in the flavors you want it to end up tasting like. For this one I added lime juice, lime zest, cilantro and red pepper flakes. It was divine I tell you!
I made a little Fiesta Slaw on this side – basically a coleslaw with some red onion, cilantro, and jalapeno added in along with some garlic and lime in the dressing to make it more zesty! You could also serve it with a nice plate of Mexican Rice and Creamy Refried Beans or maybe some black beans.
