This was a really easy & tasty recipe. The lime flavor was awesome! You could also add some tortilla chips on top, guacamole, and a little cheese.
This was good but I mostly tasted the lime juice in the meat which made it a little sour. Maybe I will add more garlic or chili powder next time. I also crushed some tortilla chips on top and used shredded lettuce.
I used this as a recipe for a RS meeting, and everyone really liked it!
Made this for Cinco de Mayo. Very light yet filling. I added one chopped chipotle and adobo sauce to the marinade. Gave it a nice kick.
