Day 20 : Lime Chicken Soft Tacos

20 days now and still going strong!  I want to take a second to thank all of those who are actually reading my blog!  I appreciate the extra motivation, as it is too easy to get lazy if I am just doing this for myself.  I’d love to hear from you on here if you make any of the recipes I have posted, and I added a star rating system to each post that I hope you will use if you decide to try any of them.

Tonight’s recipe is another one from the Key Ingredients site.  It’s a nice twist on traditional tacos and very simple to make.  Jeff really enjoyed these, as did I, my only suggestion is to squirt a little more lime juice onto each assembled taco as the flavor is a bit too subtle for my tastes.  I also think a little cilantro thrown in could really make these great!  I’d say you can get about 8-10 of the smaller sized tacos out of this, you may just wanna use a bit more cheese and lettuce than listed.  I, myself, rarely measure stuff like that when I am cooking, but I am certain I used more tonight.  Don’t mind the quick photo, with i’s over the top bokeh, I was getting quite hungry lol.

Now to go scarf down more of yesterday’s treats….
