These chicken tacos were very tasty and we loved the addition of the lime zest & juice. Added cheese, salsa and avocado.

Boy was this delicious. Loved the combination of all the flavors. We added tomatoes and they went perfectly with all the other ingredients. The only thing that didn't work for us was heating up the tortillas in the oven. Ours fell apart. Definitely a repeat recipe for our house.

Very yummy chicken tacos...I cut the recipe in half and had enough for at least 6 can really taste the lime...I used sweet onion instead of a red and an orange bell pepper instead red...only because that's what I had on hand...this is so easy and quick to prepare...made for Bill Board tag game...
