Our favorite restaurant in D.C. is Rosa Mexicano. I LOVE their chicken tacos and the table side guacamole is amazing. When I was at the library last weekend, I found this cookbook. It’s filled with tons of recipes including my favorite Chicken Tacos, Guacamole, and Margaritas. It also includes recipes for salsa, side dishes, and desserts.
Pat and I decided to pick a few recipes and have a Rosa Mexicano date night at home. We picked the adobo marinated chicken tacos, guacamole, and Mexican style street corn. We had to adapt the recipes for the ingredients we had at home. The guacamole came out great. Pat made that while I was working on Project Life.Pat also made us Margaritas to drink while we cooked the chicken and corn. The chicken came out amazing!! Seriously so good. We marinated the chicken the night before. We made the marinade with dried Guajillo chiles, garlic, chipotle in adobo, vinegar, cumin, cinnamon, salt, and olive oil. (This is adapted from the cookbook) When we were ready to make the tacos we cooked onions and peppers in a big skillet. Next we cooked the chicken, then sliced it and added everything back to the pan. We topped it with shredded Monterey jack cheese and put the whole pan in the oven until the cheese melted.We served the tacos with a little salsa verde and Mexican style street corn on the side.The corn was good but I’m not sure i’ll make it again. We did make our own queso fresco though, which came out great. We used this recipe it came out very soft and creamy.
We will definitely be making these tacos again. I really want to try to cook the chicken on the grill when the pool area opens. The marinade is so flavorful that the tacos are amazing without a ton of toppings. Chicken Taco Recipe:
