Celebrate Summer with Taco Thursday

Celebrate with 

Cook's Notes: Let's shake things up a bit and switch Taco Tuesday to Taco Thursday. 

Here are some recipes to get you started 
Cook's Notes: Honey Chipotle Chicken Tacos stuffed with wonderfully juicy, flavor packed Honey Chipotle Bacon Chicken and piled with crispy BLT Slaw topped with Cilantro Lime Crema! A flavor and texture explosion you might just crave for days. 
I was drawn to this recipe that used a new product Grill Mates Bacon Chipotle flavor in the marinade.

Shredded Pork Tacos with Root Beer Chipotle Sauce 
Cook Notes: Loved the idea of slow cooking a pork shoulder roast with root beer and chipotle peppers to amp up the flavor with a sweet and smoky taste .
