Tasty marinated and grilled chicken tacos

These chicken tacos are amazing. I use home made corn tortillas here. You can certainly use store bought. Don’t feel like you need to use every ingredient here. These would taste great with guacamole vs. the avocado sauce. You can use a different salsa and you don’t need the queso fresco. The tacos would taste fine, but these tacos taste great.

Grill the pollo asada. Prep the arbol chile salsa and avocado sauce. Crumble the queso fresco into a small bowl. Chop a small handful of cilantro. Let the chicken rest for 10 minutes after grilling.
