      This was a nice quick meal. I added more lime, just a tablespoon of oil, and less taco seasoning, since the mix I make is very spicy. We also left out the sugar and orange juice (personal preference). I think a red pepper would compliment this nicely, adding color and crunch.

      Have to admit the taco seasoning was very nice in this. Loved the dressing combo here too, as this made for a nice side to dinner tonight. Also a nice combination of spices in this. Made for Holiday tag.

      Mighty tasty, loved the intense taco seasoning on the chicken in contrast to the lime-tequila-orange dressing mix. The dressing was just a tad too runny, but this was a WINNING TASTE COMBINATION. Thanks for posting, BakinBaby! Made for Newest Zaar Tag.
