Please make sure you get on this Taco Tuesday thing and make this simple yummy dinner for yourself and your loved ones. There are a few components to this recipe but at the same time, they are all easy to make. There is the tang and crunch from the slaw, the creaminess from the crema and the spiciness from the avocado mash. You can make this dairy free by leaving out the cotija cheese, but I advise against that move. Definitely go for doubling up some corn tortillas if you want to make this a gluten free meal.

If tacos what makes you giddy, you will definitely want to try my Chopped Shrimp Tacos or my Chipotle Chicken Tacos or my Steak Tacos with Corn Salsa. All winners in my opinion.
