Healthy Tex-Mex: Chicken Margarita Tacos

Inspired by the delicious meal I had at Rosario's in San Antonio on Friday, I'm in a Tex-Mex mood.  As many trips as I have made to San Antonio, I can't believe I just discovered this local gem in the King William Historic district.

Friday's lunch was full of chayote squash, sweet potatoes, cauliflower, peppers and more.  Amazing.

Tex-Mex doesn't have to be loaded full of fat, cheese and grease to be delicious.  Look at this wonderful Tex-Mex recipe I found from the Well Fed Newlyweds blogChicken Margarita Tacos.

I am not a huge Panko bread crumbs fan.  I would stick with simply grilled chicken.  Either way, it's fantastic.
