Fire up your grill this 4th of July and serve these Patriotic Tacos with Cilantro-Lime Chicken. Top your marinated chicken with strips of red pepper, sliced jicama, white cheese and crumbled blue tortilla chips. You can’t americanize a taco more than this folks! haha
We just kicked off our summer with a family vacation to St. Augustine, FL. It’s our second summer in row visiting the city and I’m pretty sure it’s gonna be our go-to place for family vacations. The quaint little town makes our hearts swell every time we visit. Truth is, I had been telling my husband for YEARS about how much I love St. Augustine. I had been there multiple times (with other boyfriend(s)) in the past. Lots of history there, and I’m not just talking about American history. (wink, wink) This trip we visited the lighthouse where we climbed about 200 ft up to the top, took a boat over to Rattlesnake Island to see a smaller fort that is 250 years old, caught baby crabs (not snakes) on the island, relaxed almost every day on the white sandy beach next to our beach house, drifted 2 hours down the Ichetucknee River in inner tubes and saw turtles and fish, visited friends and family that live near and came home sunburned and rested. I’m grateful for the family-togetherness we get to have during our vacations. It’s our time to really connect with each individual person and just take it slow. We’re already looking forward to next year’s visit to our favorite vacation spot!
Being in the oldest American city got me super excited for this year’s 4th of July. I came up with these Patriotic Tacos to serve on our nation’s birthday. I think they’re super cute and super delicious. You can substitute fresh red peppers for roasted bell peppers. They’re delicious too and add some juiciness. Chopped tomato and shredded Pepper-Jack Cheese can also be used. These tacos are versatile. The chicken steals the show with its bold flavors. It’s SO delicious! Make extra marinade and set aside for taco garnish.
