      I cannot believe this recipe has no reviews. I went through the trouble of creating an account just to review this..it's that good. My fiance and I eat this at least a few times a month. It's his favorite thing that I make. And the best part is - it's ridiculously easy. This is really good in a tortilla with a little cheese and lime. It's juicy and flavorful and absolutely perfect. My friends all have begged me for the recipe and I always send them here. I would give this 100/5 if I could.
