Feeling taco Thursday? Avoca has shared a chicken and avocado recipe that looks sooooo good


Pass the hot sauce…

Before all of the thing that we won’t mention started, one of our culinary highlights was going out for tacos. Quick to make, cheap to buy and easy to eat, those tasty little bundles were always an option when we weren’t looking for fine dining but didn’t want to cook for ourselves either.

Of course, tacos taste every bit as good when made at home, and they’re high value on the effort versus reward scale. You only need a few basic ingredients to whip up tacos that will pass muster, but if you want to create something that will give you the full ‘eating out’ feels then there are a few professional tweaks that you can add to up the flavour.

Below, foodie favourite Avoca has shared a recipe for barbecue chicken tacos with coleslaw, mango salsa and avocado. Save them up family style… or better still keep them all to yourself.

Avoca is currently offering a food delivery service within 10km of selected stores, as well as collection of its complete food market menu.
