Delicious recipe. I'm sure it's great as it is but I swapped the chicken thighs for turkey mince and added chili flakes for spice.

This is amazingly delicious! I skipped the tortillas and used homemade corn chips instead. The pineapple salsa really makes this dish, but the chicken is lovely as well - very tender and moist. This will become a staple in my house!
