Blackberry Chipotle Chicken Tacos

Grilled Chicken wrapped in a corn tortilla topped with a squeeze of lime and beautiful chipotle blackberry sauce. Sweet and smoky with a hint of spice. 

So, I’ve been obsessed with chipotle lately. I love the smokiness. I love how the flavor can take basic boring ingredients and make them a note worthy meal. I keep using it to make sauces and then putting it on tacos. No one in my family is complaining. The more tacos I serve, the happier my family is.

These tacos make dinner super fast and easy. I grill the chicken on Sunday and store it in the fridge until we are running like crazy and serve these up. It takes exactly 5 minutes to assemble them. They are great for the day when we go from the bus to gymnastics to home for 15 minutes to swim team.

I have made this sauce with fresh blackberries because they were on sale at Aldi for $1 a pint and I am a sucker for a deal. I have also made it with frozen and that works, too. The blackberries make it sweet, without being overly sweet.

If you want to know a secret, I made the tacos in these photos at 9AM and ate them for breakfast when I was done. So these could probably totally be categorized as brunch, too.
