Sweet and Spicy Chicken Tacos

Here they are .. my favorite chicken tacos!! These are so easy to make and are sooo delicious. The chicken is sweet and juicy with a little kick of heat & you can pair them with your favorite toppings.. I opted for avocado, bell peppers and some yogurt dressing. When I make these I like to double the recipe, so that I can eat it all week long and repurpose it! Like THIS Salad
