It's all about the topping!  When you combine picante sauce with tomatoes and avocado you get a mouthwatering guacamole-style topping that turns simple grilled chicken into something special.

    The whole family loved the tacos. I dont like avacados but the sauce is awesome. I have made the sauce a few times since and we eat it with chips.

    Was good and easy to alter to suit personal tastes (i.e. Spicier). Very quick to make when time is limited.
