"This was really good - I seasoned the chicken with adobo and olive oil and baked it on the oven, so I didn't add the cumin and garlic. Not only was it light, it was also really easy to put together."

"This was so easy to prepare. The pineapple pico de gallo was awesome! I didn't add cilantro, I don't care for it, used parsley instead...still great! The taco were very tasty...I may "kick it up" a bit next time to give it a more "fire and ice" combo. This is a winner and keeper for this family!! Thanks for sharing."

"This didn't have enough veggies for our taste, so we added a cup of diced green bell pepper to about 1 1/4 cups of chicken. That was good. It would also be good with red, yellow, or orange bell pepper; or a combination of any of the four."
