10 STARS! I threw together a homemade salsa and used about 1 cup, keeping everything else the same. The Dijon adds a fantastic layer of flavor mingling with the lime of the salsa. For the chili powder, I used dried Chipotle and to make was quicker than quick. I've got an idea! Let's get together and eat until we fall over. Made for Everyday Is A Holiday.
Very easy and quick to assemble, which is always a plus when you've had a busy day. :)
I reduced the chili to a pinch and added a teaspoon of paprika to the remaining ingredients. I thinly sliced each chicken breast in 3 (to make a snitzel thickness). I let mine sit the the mix overnight. I made this for 10 people and everyone loved it. For my kids I omitted the salsa and just added cheese on top. Thanks for posting!
