Easy Rotisserie Chicken Tacos Topped with a Radish Salsa


Easy Rotisserie Chicken Tacos Topped with a Radish Salsa

Looking for an impressive super easy and quick meal? Look no further! This super easy and quick taco dinner will be sure to win over whoever you make it for. The radish salsa and cotija cheese fancy up this simple dish making it look like it's takeout or from a restaurant. The radish salsa has the prettiest pink hue to it and gives your taco that nice crunch packed with zesty cilantro-lime flavor. The homemade taco seasoning is something you can just whip up with basic ingredients you already have in your pantry (no more seasoning packets)! I love to make a big batch to keep the seasoning on hand.
