I made these for #NationalTacoDay and they were delicious especially for being "light." A few notes: first since the veggies and chicken are not cooked in oil it can get a little dry. The like juice at the end is important and I also recommend serving with a little low fat sour cream. Second I am a salt lover so I also added a little seasoning salt to the chicken seasoning blend. Otherwise this recipe makes a good amount of the chicken and veggies which results in leftovers for breakfast tacos or a salad topping the next day! Read More

This was a hit last night with the family. The fresh lime definitely sets it off. I added some Mango to the veg mix and it was great. Thanks for posting this recipe. Read More
