    I cut the chicken in strips, omitted the salt and added the juice of 1/2 lime to create a marinade and let it sit at least an hour. Grilled the chicken [no oil] with onion slices and pepper strips. Way lower calories! Way flavor, fiber and veggies too! - 3/5/11

    Really liked these....I normally don't measure the spices so I didn't put enough on the chicken. We added lettuce,tomato,shredded cheese and a little sour cream. They were a lot more filling than I thought they would be! - 5/19/09

    These were excellent! My boyfriend and I had them for dinner tonight. The only thing I did differently was that instead of cooking the chicken with the onions, I boiled the whole chicken breasts and then pulled the chicken. It worked great. - 1/9/08

    I used 3.2 oz of the chicken mixture and 1 T. salsa for each tortillas and it makes 10 servings of 1 tortilla each. I deleted the salt totally, not needed for people with HBP. We need better tasting corn tortillas in our area, otherwise it was very good. Wonder if you could add green peppers, etc - 4/11/09
