    evelyn/athens's Note:

    This is a tasty taco recipe developed to use cold, leftover chicken. Light and fresh-tasting. If you want a more traditional taco, you could heat up the chicken, but I like the chicken best at room temperature or slightly cool. This will make more salsa than you need for the tacos, but it's great with tortilla or pita crisps to snack on.

      We really enjoyed these tacos. I especially LOVED the salsa mixture, which I thought was perfect. The seasoning for the chicken is very nice. Perhaps a touch of salt would be nice. Next time I might heat up the chicken mixture (personal preference). Thank you for the quick and fun recipe. I will definitely be making that salsa again and again!

      Great meal! The chicken seasoning tastes exactly like the taco seasoning you can buy at the grocery store, which was unfortunate for me because I don't like taco seasoning, but great for everyone else! I loved the salsa, and am happy that I have some left over to use in other dishes.

      This was a quick, easy, and satisfing. I thought the meat mixture needed a bit of salt or more seasoning and I honestly didn't care for the cucumbers (personal taste)in the otherwise wonderful salsa. Other than that great job! Thank you for your RSC #10 entry.
