No need to dirty a pan, we simply cook them right on the burner flame! Not only does it warm them up but it gives them those charred edges.
Because we here at Cook With Me Darling like to make your life easier, we offer this recipe using rotisserie chicken. But if you love to roast your own, you can double the recipe for our spicy lime chicken and use that, either way, you are going to toss that tender chicken in fresh lime juice, garlic and jalapeño for a fabulous taco filling!

The Add Ons and Lime Crema:
Because this chicken is so flavorful, we keep the toppings fairly simple: avocado, Cotija cheese, and tomatoes. The final flavor flourish is the lime crema! Sour cream, mixed with lime juice and zest…yup, that’s it. So easy but adds a touch of creamy lime to each taco! And if you love the look of that Mexican Street Corn and Arugula Salad <–click!
