Tacos don’t have to be greasy or take hours to prepare. They can also be fresh and healthy tacos, like the ones in Mexico which people have as everyday meals. Sometimes quick chicken tacos, with homemade guacamole and pico de gallo is all you need.

This healthy taco recipe is perfect to make on any day of the week. With a bit of help from our Gran Luchito Ancho BBQ Fajita and Taco Mix, you can make a quick marinade for your chicken, followed by some Gran Luchito Soft Tacos Wraps to serve it in. The guacamole and pico de gallo are just the perfect easy, fresh and tasty additions to finish up these chicken tacos nicely.

We also recommend trying our Gran Luchito Tomatillo Salsa or Gran Luchito Chipotle Salsa with this chicken taco recipe.
