    Great, I loved adding diced avocado and tomato on top of mine. We also added some sour cream on the side. I even got the kids to eat it #win I also didn’t add lime or cilantro as I don’t like them.

    This turned out great. I substituted chicken chorizo sausage and added some sautéed veggies. Delish! It helped that I used some homemade adobo for bit of smokey and spice.
