  • If ur using a gas grill…. ur better off using the stove or oven. Gas grills are the pretend adults version of cooking

  • What if you don’t have a outdoor grill? Could this be made in an oven??

  • Just made the marinade and soaking in the fridge for tonights dinner ?

  • The acidity in the lime really draws out hormone disrupting chemicals out of the plastic bag. Yum yum
    Just use glass and non factory farm chicken

  • That looks so good. Definitely will try it. All your dishes are delicious !

  • Will you Marry Me?? I'm an old fart,so if I eat everything you make, at my age I won't live 6 months. Its a win win…….LOL.. Great Channel keep up the great work!!!!!

  • Aren’t tacos just so amazing and a easy meal. As we say in Spanish “Delicioso”??? thanks for this recipe I am so going to try it

  • Oh dear Lord Almighty this came out soooooo good (I did add 1 tsp cumin to the marinade). Thank you TSAHC.

  • Mmmm! Looks delicious! You pretty much had me at " super easy to make" lol!

  • TIP: The best authentic Mexican Flour tortillas can be found in Costco! Caveat: They do have to be cooked in a pan…but they taste JUST like the heavenly flour tortillas that authentic Mexican taco shops make their burritos in! After we tasted these…we never bought grocery-store tortillas from Albertsons, nor Vons, Smart & Final, nor Food4Less. The ones from Costco have a package lettering that is brown. They do have an "organic" one that has green lettering…but to me that just means it's $1–$2 dollars more! lol Get the brown. ❤️

  • You always add a kick to my day. Thank you so much. I have struggled for a while to make healthy, delicious and easy to follow meals for my family and you were recommended on my home page, and I couldn’t be happier to have found your channel. Thank you for your time, experience and fun ways of making food fun instead of hard work.
