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).
