Sunday Supper Series: Chipotle Lime Chicken Tacos

Another one of my favorite food bloggers is Leigh Anne from Home Based Mom.  She is an incredibly talented woman with a gift for food, home decor, family, entertaining and fun.  I have followed her for years and I am a better cook, photographer, and hostess for it! 

These chicken chipotle tacos not only look beautiful, but taste amazing. 

You marinade the chicken ahead of time; but other than that, putting the meal together takes 20 minutes or less.  This is a go to meal for my family, though we go way easy on the canned chipotle chiles (1 can is good for our wimpy-about-spicy-stuff family).
