I’ve always enjoyed using my indoor electric griddle to create all kinds of meals. But when I received my Cuisinart 360° Griddle Cooking Center it basically replaced my indoor griddle. Because this thing is the bomb.

It’s got a huge surface and I can cook all sorts of meals on it.  One of our favorites to make is these Spicy Cajun Griddle Chicken Tacos. But don’t worry, they can be made on your indoor griddle too!

My kids and I love tacos! We eat them far more often than Taco Tuesday but don’t worry, we celebrate that too. What I love about tacos is that you can switch it up and they can taste different each time you make them.

I also love them because they are a quick and easy lunch idea as well. We eat these Spicy Cajun Griddle Chicken Tacos for lunch often.

For these Spicy Cajun Griddle Chicken Tacos, we tend to keep things simple and only top with minimal toppings. This is mostly to make sure the Cajun spice comes through enough.

If you like things less spicy, use less seasoning and if you like them even spicier, load them up with chopped peppers with a bit more heat.
