These curried chicken and pear tacos are sure to bring a new twist to Taco Tuesday. I dunno about you, but I get so bored of the same old taco flavor. Of course it's nostalgic and will always have a place in my heart, however some days you need something different. The Bartlett pears in these tacos add a delightful crunch to simple shredded chicken and onions. Curry adds even more depth of flavor with coconut milk bringing home the creaminess. While the coconut milk is not necessary, it is highly recommended. Switch up your Taco Tuesday with these curried chicken and pear tacos.
