Whether your a taco lover or not, this meal is extra leanmazing. It wasn't until I played a season in San Diego where I truly fell in love with tacos and since then, I have been experimenting ever since. This meal, is the perfect mix of tasty, flavour fulness yet is SO easy that there really is no way to go wrong. It takes less than 30 minutes to make and plus, the homemade creamy sauce is another huge bonus. Long story short, this is a lean meal you do not want to miss out on!

Enjoy Squadies!

  3. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to heated skillet. Place freshly seasoned chicken and cook until cooked through. Once cooked to liking, add a squeeze of lime juice.
