These grilled chili lime chicken tacos are loaded with smoky, charred flavor! They’re also topped with a grilled pineapple avocado salsa that is incredible. Throw on some cotija cheese, pickled onions and you’re good to go.
Chili lime chicken tacos are the star of the show today!
Orrrrr maybe, the grilled pineapple avocado salsa is the star of the show. Make a bowl of that and pass the chips please!
Actually, the real star of this show is Tajin! I love using Tajin seasoning for just about anything – all my meats, roasted vegetables and even the rim of a margarita (when I can drink them, haha). Today, the chicken marinates in Tajin and tastes like heaven.
If you haven’t tried Tajin before, it’s not overly spicy. I don’t love a ton of heat and I find it to be more like chili powder mixed with fresh lime. The lime flavor is so fantastic here!
If you can’t find Tajin or would prefer something else, I’ve also found chili lime seasoning at Target and Trader Joe’s before too. If neither of those options work either, you can make your own! I suggest combining chili powder, a bit of salt and pepper, garlic powder and fresh lime zest. It will taste fantastic.
After the chicken takes a little Tajin soak, I grill it for even more smoky, charred flavor. It’s divine!
At the same time, I grill some pineapple spears too. If you’ve been around this blog long enough you probably remember back in 2009 when I had an obsession with fruit salsa. I mean, I still do have an obsession with fruit salsa! I’ve probably made just about every version of fruit salsa there is. Almost.
In this case, I wanted to do a smoky grilled pineapple, which in turn would caramelize ever so slightly and that would bring out the sweetness. Combine that with some creamy avocado and spicy jalapeño. And a few classics like red onion and cilantro and lime.
Oh my WORD.
You will love this salsa so much. Seriously considering just eating it with a spoon and calling it a salad. I mean, that would work, right? (more…)
