Grilled Tequila Lime Chicken Taco Recipe!

Enjoy this day with a delicious grill recipe for Tequila Lime Chicken Tacos!  It's easy to make and all you will need are the following ingredients and a little time.


  • 1 cup fresh lime juice
  • a 1/2 cup tequila
  • a 1/2 cup orange juice
  • a 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 and a 1/2 tablespoons of serrano pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • about 3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 6 boneless chicken breast
  • 2 cups of pepper jack cheese (this can be substituted for your own favorite cheese)
  • sour cream
  • 1 large diced heirloom tomato
  • 1 large diced red onion 
  • 1 bag of flour tortillas 


To start mix together the lime juice, tequila, orange juice, cilantro, serrano pepper flakes, salt, and black pepper in a large tupperware container. Add and cover the chicken breasts with the marinade mixture.  Put the lid on the tupperware, and let it chill for about an hour in the fridge.  You can use this time to change your air filters... or enjoy a tasty beverage of your choosing!

Preheat your grill to medium heat.  Rub a halved onion along the grates to create a non stick surface for grilling on. Place chicken on the grill, and grill the chicken for about 18 to 20 minutes or until fully cooked.  Be sure to turn the chicken occasionally. About 10 minutes in drizzle the remaining marinade on top of the chicken and then continue to grill until fully cooked.

Take the chicken off the grill and let it sit for about 5 to 8 minutes.  Take each chicken breast, cut them into pieces, and transfer them to a bowl.  Around the same time, layout your tortillas on the grill (your grill should be off now), and close the lid to warm up your tortillas. 

Now it is time to make your tacos! 

Fill your tortilla with a combination of chicken, onion, tomatoes, sour cream, and cheese.  Add some lime juice or hot sauce for a little extra kick.  Then sit back and enjoy your creation!
