Tacos Tacos Tacos

So get this... I’ve been working long hours lately, and when I came home from work a few days ago, the sweetest hubby in the world made me the most bomb meal ever.  I’m talkin’ straight out of a cookbook – I felt so special, and it tasted absolutely delicious! 

It was so good, in fact, that I had to brag on him and share the recipe – and look at all of the beautiful colors... pretty well done, if you ask me!

 
I’ve said this before, and I surely mean it, girlfriend loves street tacos… they are the way to my heart, and John knows it! You can mix and match your ingredients, but every street taco needs some sort of amazing sauce. John found this recipe, and it will certainly be on repeat!

  
Street Taco Sauce

What you need:
 - Juice from 2 limes
- 1/3 cup oil
- 1/4 cup white vinegar
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 3/4 cup cilantro leaves
- 4 tsp minced garlic
- 4 tsp sugar

How to:
Put all ingredients into a blender and pulse for 1-2 minutes, or until smooth.

For our street tacos we had small corn tortillas, chicken, red cabbage, white onion, cilantro, and avocado... and they were uh-mazing! Is it just me, or does a perfectly ripe avocado bring a tear to your eye?


 
Pair with a Dos Equis (or a margarita!), and you’ve got yourself a pretty fabulous meal.
 
Have a sweet tooth? Check out my sugar cookie fruit tacos for dessert!
