    Wasn’t bad at all and I really liked them, alongside my sister and mom. I added some of my own seasonings to the chicken and didn’t put them in the oven to melt the cheese. That said, I slightly modified the recipe. But other than that, they were pretty good and I’d make this recipe again.

    Worth the review We wouldn’t have done the taco paste because there’s not really enough to fully spread it kind of is a bit lumpy as well but besides that it’s delicious

    These were good. I used whole pinto beans and added some pico. I drained and constructed the tacos. I cooked longer to make them crispy. The recipe was a bit confusing. I finally figured out to skillet cook the chicken and then bake the tacos to crisp them up served with Trader Joe’s Green Dragon Sauce and sour cream. Will make again.
