Just made the "Tacos" portion of the recipe. The seasoning on the chicken is outstanding. I also used flour tortillas (I don't like corn ones). For the salad greens I used spinach salad greens. GREAT recipe. Really easy and quick as well. I also like a very small amount of sour cream on each taco. Served w/a side of rice.
