One of our favorite casual weeknight dinners used to be picking up the $20 rotisserie chicken deal from Taqueria Nixtamal at The Market Line. It came with rotisserie chicken, fluffy tortillas, and an assortment of salsas that lent itself really well to a DIY taco situation. Unfortunately, they haven’t brought back the deal since they reopened but don’t let that discourage you - the place still makes worthwhile tacos that come on delicious handmade tortillas. They have a solid birria version, with crispy bits of cheese that cling to the tortilla and a rich and spicy consomme.
