Chipotle Chicken Tacos

We probably eat Mexican food once or twice a week at our house because we love it so much! I love finding different variations of my favorites, like tacos, so we can switch it up a little. This taco recipe is one of my favorites. It's so packed with flavor and so delicious!

Chipotle Chicken Tacos
2 Tbsp butter
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp minced canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
1/2 cup orange juice
1 Tbsp worcestershire sauce
3/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro, divided
2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 tsp yellow mustard
salt and pepper
12 (6 inch) flour tortillas, warmed
Toppings: Lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, avocado, sour cream

Melt butter in a large skillet. Add garlic and chipotle peppers and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in orange juice, worcestershire sauce, and 1/2 cup of cilantro. Bring to a boil. Add chicken and simmer, covered, at medium-low heat for 12-13 minutes, flipping chicken halfway through cooking. When chicken is cooked through, transfer to a plate and tent with foil.

Increase the heat to medium-high and cook until the sauce is reduced to 1/4 cup, about 3-5 minutes. Turn off the heat and stir in yellow mustard. Using two forks, shred the chicken into bite sized pieces. Return to skillet and coat evenly with sauce. Add remaining cilantro and toss evenly. Season with salt and pepper. Serve in warm tortillas topped with lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, avocado, and sour cream.

Serves 6-8
