I happen to love tacos and could eat them every day of my life! These full-flavored tacos have it all: spicy, zesty, creamy and garlicky. They are wonderful for our tailgating parties and Taco Tuesday dinners!

We have been traveling for 5 months all over the USA…driving! It was an amazing trip and I have to say that I searched out for the best Mexican food in the USA. I found so much of it and had to recreate my favorite taco recipe that I had in New Mexico. These Spicy Chicken tacos were the best, I think I came close to the recipe at our favorite Southwest diner!

Whether I’m prepping food for a tailgate party or getting some stadium food at the game, I have a serious passion for food and it’s a major part of my life. For years, it’s been an issue for me. I’m often not able to enjoy spicy foods because of my frequent heartburn. If you are in the same situation, you are going to be as excited about this as I am.

That’s why I’m excited to partner with Nexium® 24HR to encourage people to fight frequent heartburn and join in all of life’s moments- no matter what’s on the menu, like my delicious Spicy Chicken Tacos with Avocados.

If you have been following my blog, you may already know that I love easy recipes using simple ingredients. I know that we are all on a time constraint and need dinner on the table for our families in under an hour.

These spicy chicken tacos are the only taco recipe you will ever need! They are spicy, zesty, simple, and so fresh.

Avocado is necessary for these tacos, so you can either put some chunks of avocado on the tacos or you can just mash up your avocado on the bottom of the tortilla, like a little spread.

Spicy Chicken Tacos with Avocados -are an easy chicken taco recipe filled with simple and clean ingredients. It takes less than 30 minutes to make and pleases the whole family!

Can these Spicy Chicken Tacos be made ahead:

Yes, these tacos can be made ahead. The meat can be made in advance and stored in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. Just reheat before serving. The meat can be frozen in a freezer safe container for up to 2-4 months. Thaw overnight and reheat before serving.

Serve on corn or flour tortillas, whatever is your favorite.

Add anything else that you like: tomatoes, cheese, or just make the recipe like I did!

After all the cooking and recipe testing I do, I could never imagine life without heartburn! Now after taking Nexium® 24HR for 14 days, I’ve got all-day, all-night protection from frequent heartburn. Nexium® 24HR capsules, are the #1 frequently selling heartburn brand, (ii) which gives you protection from heartburn all day and all night long. (i)

I am excited that I can find Nexium® 24HR Capsules at my local Walmart.
