Street Chicken Tacos are one of our family favorites. Cook the chicken, add the sauces to the crock pot and forget about it for a few hours and you have amazing tacos.
We love the corn shells warmed up; add the meat mixture, top with tomatoes, cheese, lettuce, avocado and you could even add sour cream if you like. So good and your family will be asking for street chicken tacos weekly. I bet you can’t eat just one!

This week my daughter was gone and so I watched her kids for a day and a night and part of the next day. She has 3 children, 8, 2 3/4 (going on 20) and a 2 1/2 month old.
I guess that I am not in my twenties any more. Shucks!! The first day while I was busy taking care of the baby, the 2 1/2 year old filled the toilet with a whole roll of toilet paper and then she mixed it up with her hands. Gross.
I thought to myself, how in the world am I going to get this toilet paper out of here? So I went and I got the garden spade and scooped it out. I didn’t want to put my hand in there!!! Then I put it in a garbage sack and took it to the trash.
What is the Difference Between a Flour Tortilla and a Corn Tortilla?
- As the name suggests, the main ingredient in flour tortillas is flour.
- They are typically softer and have less flavor than corn tortillas and are used for a variety of different Mexican dishes.
- They are typically much bigger than corn tortillas, allowing them to be used in dishes such as these, and they are stronger.
The rest of the day did go pretty good until I found her in my salon blow drying her hair. She really thinks of everything and she talks so well, that sometimes I forget that she is only 2, almost 3.
She does like to give her parents a run for their money. Good thing that she’s so stink-en cute. Her older brother likes to tease her and she likes to be a drama queen when it comes to being teased.
She thinks that it is the end of the world. She cries and tells you all about it and one second later she is back, asking for more. She is a miniature of her father.
The baby was amazing, as soon as I got her to sleep at 12:30, she slept until the next morning at 8:30. She then ate, stayed awake for 1 hour and then went back to sleep for 3 hours.
She is growing like a weed and she really looks like she is 6 months old. When you go to all the work to have a baby, it is too bad that they grow up so fast. She is one amazing little girl and she reminds me a lot of her mother when she was little, and that even includes the rolls on her legs.
What Is a Street Taco Compared to a Regular Taco?
- Mexican street tacos are smaller tacos, typically served on corn tortillas.
- They are small in size, making it easier for a “street traveler” to enjoy a quick meal.
- The filling is served on two small corn tortillas so that they don’t rip or tear when piled high with toppings.
The 8 year old he likes to do his own thing and he loves to be right. I am pretty sure he gets that from his mom. She was very good at debate. However, he loves his sisters and he is a really good brother to them. If he just wouldn’t tease the 2 year old, things would be awesome. I must remember that kids will be kids! They are such a joy and I do love them.
Also my grandson that is living with us until he and his parents move to Idaho, is a gem. He loves to smile. He is 9 months old and he is starting to get more mobile. He loves to eat and click his tongue. He has blonde hair and blue eyes and he loves his mom. He never wants her to leave him alone. He brings lots of smiles every day and he is a happy baby.
And so when life is busy, as everyone’s is, make some street chicken tacos. With a few simple ingredients you are set to enjoy a nice family meal together!
