Chili Lime Chicken Tacos With Pineapple Salsa

A dish that’s easy to make with unique ingredients & bold flavors. That’s my kind of meal. Serves 4. Sorry no pictures on this one. My concentration is not food photography but making awesome food for my family! For a picture collage of some of my other recipes, please see the main menu.

Ingredients

  • 2 marinated, baked & chopped chicken thighs
  • 1/2 cup cheddar or pepper jack cheese

Directions

  • In a pan add the onion, sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Sauté on medium – high heat.

  • After the pineapple has cooled, add cilantro & scallions. Mix well.
