This was fast and simple to make, and really had a much better flavor than I expected! I was worried the meat would be too sweet, but it was just fine. I used paprika in place of chipotle (noted in the ingredients as an alternative). For my pico, I chopped up some Roma tomatoes, then threw in fresh cilantro, little onion powder, and a dash of salt. We really liked the addition of romaine lettuce for good crunch. The only thing I would do differently is use flour tortillas instead of corn, because my husband said he found the corn tortillas to be a little to dry for his taste.

Very good quick dinner. Loved the smoky flavor with the sweetness of the corn tortillas. Made it just as written, and it's a keeper!

Very quick, easy and tasty recipe. Definitely a keeper. Good flavor and can even pair it up with just some rice. You can definitely play around with this. Thanks!
