OK, I was definalty a little worried about the diet cola in this recipe, but once I took a bite I was hooked! The chicken was so moist and all the flavors blended so nicely. I do recommend not leaving out the jelapenos because they do balance out the sweetness from the cola. The flour tortillas actually added a great flavor too, I think they worked better than corn chips would have. I added some lettuce and sour cream on top for a great plate of nachos!
