- 1 Tb healthy oil/fat of your choice *optional if using a non-stick pan
- 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken cut into 1" cubes I like to use boneless, skinless chicken thighs because they don't dry out the way chicken breasts can
- 1/2 jar Mesa de Vida Smoky Latin flavor Recipe Starter Sauce about 1/2 cup
- salt and hot sauce/sliced jalapenos to taste our recipe starter sauces are extremely low in sodium so you can adjust the sodium to your health needs/taste preferences
- 1/2 diced onion, 1 diced bell pepper, 1 clove minced garlic *optional – these ingredients are already in the Mesa de Vida recipe starter sauce, but I like to add a bit more to bump up the volume of the recipe a bit
- 1 package JicaFoods JicaTortillas *you can use this filling for any taco wrap you like, of course!
- toppings of your choice: pickled red onions, baby spinach, sliced jalapenos, cheese, olives…whatever you like!
- Heat a skillet over medium heat; when hot add oil/fat, swirl to coat. (Skip if using a nonstick pan.)
- Add the chicken, Mesa de Vida Smoky Latin flavor Recipe Starter Sauce. Add salt/hot sauce/sliced jalapenos/diced onions, bell peppers, garlic if using.
- Stirring often, cook until the chicken is fully cooked and most of the juices have thickened to coat the chicken.
- Assemble your tacos as you like, eat, and enjoy!
