How to make it

  1. Add the Smoky Chipotle Fajita and Taco Mix onto your chicken breasts with the lime juice, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, a pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper. Cover with cling film and let it marinate for 20 mins at least.
  2. In the meantime prepare a quick guacamole. Add the avocado flesh into a bowl and mash it with a fork. Add the onion, jalapeno, extra virgin olive oil, a pinch of salt and black pepper, then mix and set aside.
  3. In a different bowl prepare a quick pico de gallo. Mix the tomatoes, onion, extra virgin olive oil, lime juice, coriander, salt and pepper.
  4. Get the barbecue going or heat up a cast-iron skillet with the remaining olive oil. Grill or pan-fry your marinated chicken and let it get a bit of colour on both sides. Finish cooking it covered with a lid, to allow it to cook fully without getting dry.
  5. Once ready, remove from the heat and cut the chicken into strips with a sharp knife. Serve your chicken with warm Soft Taco Wraps, a good amount of guacamole and some of the pico de gallo. Finally don’t forget to try some Gran Luchito Salsas!
