I liked it, didn't have time to marinate for 1 hour.. I used concentrated Key lime juice.. very tangy and added some splenda to sweeten... Great!!

I really liked the way these came out, a little tangy, a little spicy, and grilling them adds a nice smoky flavor. Very nice.

Made this for lunch today with DD - YUMMY! We didn't use any veggies as we decided to grill these and then serve on a salad. Love the combo of lemon, taco seasoning though - this is a great, quick meal for the summer or anytime!! We BBQ year round at our house - rain, snow or shine we just pul, the BBQ to the door and grill away and this is a nice tasty treat! Thanks for the recipe!
