      We started eating paleo two weeks ago, and this is the best entree yet! Recommend for anyone who likes spicy.

      This recipe was super simple, quick and easy to make. Spicy + Lime = Heaven for my family. I am vegetarian so I actually substituted tofu for the chicken; worked out great. Super yummy and flavorful.

      Delicious! They are very spicy, next time I will use only one chipotle pepper. I loved them, but they were too spicy for my kids.
