Tequila Lime Chicken Taco Salad


  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1/8 cup tequila
  • Grated zest of 1 lime (optional)
  • 1 Tbsp minced gatlic
  • 1 Tbsp minced shallot(s)
  • Habanero flakes to taste (or cayenne, or hot sauce)
  • 1 cup cooked, shredded chicken

Cooking Instructions:

  1. Mix together all ingredients and place in a zipper bag and marinate for at least 1 hour.
  2. Heat the chicken and marinade, in a frying pan over medium heat, until excess liquid evaporates (just a few minutes) and the garlic and shallots are cooked and fragrant
  3. Serve chicken atop lettuce and tortilla chips with your favorite toppings. I used cilantro, green onions, tomatoes, jalapeños (for my husband), and guacamole.
  4. Serves 2.  Finish with a shot of tequila or a Margarita 🙂
  5. Enjoy.
