    I love chicken tacos! Well, tacos of any kind. I grew up in California, so I was raised on Mexican food. Now, I live in Pennsylvania where they consider Taco Bell ‘Mexican Food’. Ha! Always looking for new recipes. 🙂 Going to bookmark this one for later.

    Thanks for sharing! I’m a new follower.

    Feel free to stop by my blog & say hello some time!
