Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



Excellent! This is a very tasty dish that was well enjoyed tonight. It has different layers of flavor with the chipotle, wine, cilantro, lime, etc. Next time I will use avocado for one of the tortilla fillings, as it would go excellent, but it was super without it. Thank you ellie for sharing another winner. Made it for Billboard Tag.
