Baja Chicken Tacos

Today I’m back with another recipe! This recipe is from Tuesday’s weekly menu, and I am also giving the grocery list that goes with it to make your next week meals a breeze! I was actually pretty nervous when I made this for my husband, because it is a little different from our usual flavors. Of course, that is what I was aiming for, and it did not disappoint!

Feel free to change or add seasonings and ingredients for what works for your family, not all taste are the same, but I don’t think you’ll need to tweak this one! 🙂 Enjoy.
