      I can't believe I haven't rated this yet. I've made these a good many times. Talk about yummy! I use the leftover's from the Roast "Sticky" Chicken found on this site (can't seem to locate the recipe number), which adds a fabulous flavor to the chicken. I also grate the carrots rather than cut them into small pieces (at the request of my denture-wearing neighbor pal who eats here often). Truly great tacos! So glad to have bumped into this recipe. :)
