I really like the flavors of the pico de gallo, ranch sauce and mexican cheeses all mixed up together. However; the chicken did not turn out well for me. I made my own margarita mix with fresh lemon and lime juice so that may have been the source of my problem. I marinated the chicken for about 20 hours and the fresh citrus juice made the chicken tough. Perhaps the store bought margarita mix would not do that.
