Lime Chicken Tacos

When I was first married, we had tacos once a week because they were so easy! I was always afraid to experiment with new recipes because I was afraid my husband wouldn’t like them. We just celebrated our 7th Wedding Anniversary and things have sure changed! I am trying new recipes and experimenting with food about 5 times a week.  I am still about quick and easy recipes but now I like to focus on the flavor! These Lime chicken Tacos taste delicious and are so easy to throw together on a busy night.
