    Debbwl's Note:

    These soft shelled tacos have the colors of the Mexican flag. With layers of guacamole, sour cream, and chicken in tomato sauce. Can sub. 2 fresh serrano or some crushed red pepper for the pickled jalapeno, although the pickled jalapeno seems to add something special.

      Yum yum yum!! I admit that I did make a few alterations...I used the remnants of a jar of salsa for the tomato sauce,adding a little water to let it down.I cut back back on the jalapeno a little,as the salsa was an extra hot one,and I didn't want to over do it,and I used ready made taco shells. These went down an absolute storm...the chicken was perfectly spiced and the guacamole and sour cream complimented beautifully. I am absolutely making these again...thank you for posting such a quick and wonderfully tasty recipe!! Made for PRMR.
