    Ridgely's Note:

    This recipe comes from a favorite new cook book "The Food Nanny Rescues Dinner". Our family has never been that overwhelmed with chicken tacos until we tried this recipe. The kids were fighting over this meat mixture and have demanded that it be put on our monthly tried and trues. The only thing I did to change the recipe was to add just a bit of chicken taco seasoning that I had in the cabinet from Penzey Spice Company. Don't know if it really needed it, I just wanted to try my new spice.
