Cilantro Lime Chicken Tacos with Homemade Salsa Recipe!

Those of you that have been following this blog for a while know that I am determined in 2016 to eat more balanced meals.  While I’ve been excited to see some progress so far, I find that one of the trickiest things to manage is being able to eat a balanced meal that I can put together quickly.

I’ve tried everything from prepping a week’s worth of meals in advance to making my recipes as simple as possible but there always seems to be that one lunch that I don’t have any meal prepared for and I just don’t have time to make something.  That’s why I always try to keep a few STOUFFER’S® FIT KITCHEN™ meals in my freezer, they can be prepared in less than 8 minutes, taste fantastic, and are available at your local Walmart!

One of favorites it the Cilantro Lime Chicken that I can turn into wonderful Chicken Avocado Tacos topped with my amazing Fire Roasted Salsa.  The lime on the chicken pairs incredibly well with the avocados, making this a delicious meal that has a great balance of carbs, protein, and fat.

First let me share with you my amazing Fire Roasted Salsa recipe.
