Happy Taco Tuesday everyone! One of my favorite days of the week because I get to create and indulge in some yummy tacos at the same time ????

There’s no need to go out for Mexican food this weekend for Cinco de Mayo when you can make delicious tacos in the comfort of your home with fresh ingredients, especially now that the weather is beautiful!

This weather is perfect for outdoor grilling so I wanted to share this quick, easy, healthy and satisfying recipe that you can whip up for lunch or dinner for friends and/or family!

What you’ll need:

4 flour or gluten-free Tortillas*

2 boneless skinless chicken breast OR

4 halibut fillets

Cooking spray

4 Lettuce leaves

2 Avocados

How to make them:

1) Prepare grill.

2) Combine all seasonings: sea salt, black pepper, garlic and cumin into a bowl; rub mixture over chicken breast

3) Place chicken or fish on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 10 minutes on each side or until done. Let stand 5 minutes; slice into pieces.

4) Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, prepare guacamole by smashing avocado with lime juice and sea salt. Set aside.
