Fajita Chicken Tacos with Sweet Corn and Jalapeño Salsa Topping

Jump to recipe

Taco Tuesday is always a must and I love adding a sweet element to my tacos! Sometimes I will add fruit and sometimes I add corn or a sweet slaw of some sort! It makes the tacos have a nice depth of flavor! Tacos can sometimes fall flat on flavor if you just add cheese and lettuce (not that they aren’t still delicious, but sometimes I like a change up). Tacos are so easy to switch up the flavors or experiment with different ideas! I LOVE DOING THAT! These flavors go together so well and create such a wonderful balance that is warm and inviting. These tacos will fill your home with a delicious smell that will last all night!
