Tacos

Ingredients

  • 2 c. Guacamole made with Avocados From Mexico
  • 8 small Mission Yellow Corn Tortillas
  • 1 lb. chicken thighs, boneless skinless or chicken breasts
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 T. lime juice (optional)
  • 1 T. chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp. paprika (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder or onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt, to taste
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 8 small corn tortillas
  • Pico de Gallo:
  • onion, finely chopped
  • tomato, finely chopped
  • cilantro, finely chopped
  • seeded jalapeño, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp. lime juice
  • pinch salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Add the chicken, garlic, olive oil, lime, and spices, to a large bowl or zip-seal bag and stir or shake to combine.
  2. Heat a large pan to medium-high heat. Cook chicken 6-7 minutes per side or until it is no longer pink and the internal temperature of 165 degrees F. Remove from heat and cool for at least 5 minutes. Slice or chop into small cubes.
  3. While the chicken is cooking, combine the chopped tomato, jalapeno, onion, cilantro, and lime juice in a small bowl. Char tortillas on the stovetop over the flame until lightly charred (this step is optional).
  4. Assemble tacos by placing about 1/4 cup of chicken into each tortilla. Top with a few tablespoons of the onion-tomato mixture and a drizzle of cilantro sauce (*optional)
