Honey Chipotle Chicken Tacos
And I am still craving these Honey Chipotle Chicken Tacos. And I will every single day until I devour them again. Patrick was almost speechless as he gobbled taco after taco after taco. Or in other words, we are both pretty much obsessed.
And there is a lot to obsess about starting with the Bacon Honey Chipotle Chicken. Heavens yes.
Are you looking for the perfect dish to serve at your 4th of July BBQ? Do you love smoky bacon? Do you love spicy chipotle? Then you are going to think this chicken is the next best thing after bacon itself because McCormick has found a way to bottle up all that bacon chipotle flavor into McCormick Grill Mates Bacon Chipotle Seasoning! This is epic. It means we can now infuse practically anything and everything with bacon chipotle goodness! Bacon chipotle steak, you got it. Bacon Chipotle dressing, you got it. Bacon Chipotle potatoes, you got it. Bacon chipotle broccoli, you got it. Bacon chipotle pasta sauce, you got it. epic.
This McCormick Grill Mates Bacon Chipotle Seasoning is a spicy blend of REAL cured bacon, chipotle chili peppers, onions, garlic and paprika. Its bold and spicy so you don’t need much to conveniently elevate your grilled chicken/steak/pork or veggies to the next level and it would be dynamite in your next hamburgers – I can’t wait.
I chose to use this Bacon Chipotle Seasoning in a bold marinade of olive oil and honey with splashes of Dijon, ketchup, cider vinegar, lime juice, coriander and oregano. After bathing in this marinade, this grilled bacon honey chipotle chicken emerges incredibly juicy bursting with glorious sweet heat that’s not too hot for the kiddos in my opinion, just mega mega flavorful and destined to become a new favorite chicken.
The bacon honey chipotle chicken is nestled in a cheesy tortilla (I like to go crazy and cover my entire tortilla with cheese), and is then topped with BLT Slaw, because, more bacon. This BLT slaw adds a refreshing crunch to the tacos and could be a stand alone side dish it’s that good. It boasts crispy cabbage, juicy tomatoes, punchy red onion and of course BACON! It’s infused with some of our heavenly Cilantro Lime Crema and some reserved marinade for added flavor without any added work.
Finally, the crowning Cilantro Lime Crema. Lusciously creamy, seasoned to perfection and adds the complementary fresh and tangy zip to the savory honey chipotle zang.
Pile all those layers – the melt in your mouth bacon honey chipotle chicken, the fresh crunchy BLT slaw and silky Chipotle Lime crema on a cheesy tortilla and we have an epic Honey Chipotle Chicken Taco that’s almost as epic as Bacon Chipotle Seasoning itself. Almost.
