Ingredients

Chicken Tacos Ingredients:

· 1 tablespoon olive oil
· 1 lb chicken (about 2 skinless and boneless chicken breasts)
· 1 teaspoon chili powder
· 1 teaspoon ground cumin
· 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
· 1 teaspoon salt
· ½ teaspoon black pepper
· 2 chipotle peppers in adobo (chopped)
· 2 tablespoons adobo sauce (from the chipotle peppers)

Serving Ingredients:

· Corn tortillas (warmed)
· Guacamole
· Pico de gallo (homemade or store-bought)
· Pickled red onions
· Jalapenos 
· Lime Wedges

  

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. 
  2. In a small bowl, mix the spices (chili powder, ground cumin, smoked paprika, Purecane™ Brown Sweetener, salt, and black pepper). Set aside. 
  3. In another bowl, mix the chopped chipotle peppers, adobo sauce, and lime juice. Set aside. 
  4. Season the chicken breasts well with the homemade seasoning mix.
