Made both tempeh and rotisserie chicken tacos- chicken were voted bette by the family. Used celery instead of onions in the amazing peach salsa. Added avocado and served corn on the cob on the side. Good easy meal.

Delicious tacos. Used frozen corn instead, which worked fine, although I didn't measure and it was out of proportion to the peaches. The marinade was great.

Maybe the chicken didn't marinate long enough, but it didn't really have a flavor. Liked the salsa, though!

Surprisingly good. I was a little leery of the honey mustard for tacos, but it worked!
