Cilantro Lime Pesto Tacos

My weekly menu could consist of tacos, tacos, pizza and tacos. I really like these Steak Street Tacos or if you are not up for grilling, try these Crockpot Birria Tacos, so good!! There are about 100 variations of tacos and I am going to start sharing my favorite with my readers each week. You can thank me in advance ;)

I like this variation because it is so dang easy!! I typically use rotisserie chicken so all I have to do it make the Cilantro Lime Pesto sauce and the Pico. The other great part of this recipe is it doesn't need a bunch of jazz to go with the tacos. I only pair this with the Pico. My husband does like to add cheese and sour cream (pic below) but it really flavorful just left simple.

I realized with Christmas right around the corner you could serve this as part of a Holiday menu as well. It's so Christmasy and pretty and I am sure there is someone out there that is plane sick of turkey at this point ;) It's sure to be a crowd pleaser too!

The recipe can be easily adjusted to accommodate your likings. If you like a lot of garlic, add more! If you like a lot of lime, add more! You can play with it and find what you like the best. Here is what I do each time:

Ingredients for Cilantro Lime Pesto Sauce:

1/2 cup chicken stock

2 fresh limes squeezed

2 garlic cloves

2 cups cilantro (stems removed)

4 tblspn toasted slivered almonds

1/2 cup asiago cheese

salt and pepper to taste


Combine all ingredients in food processor or bullet. Blend for less than 1 minute. Pour on top of rotisserie chicken. Bake in oven at 350degrees for 15-20minutes until warmed all the way through.

Ingredients for Pico:

handful grape tomatoes diced

2-3 limes, juiced

1 jalapeño diced with seeds removed

1/4 cup cilantro

a bunch scallions

salt & pepper to taste

Top on tacos and enjoy!!
