  • 600g Cooked Chicken
  • 150g Refried Beans
  • 9 Nixtamal Tortillas
  • 4oz Fresh Onion and Cilantro
  • 4oz Cojita Cheese
  • 132g Crema
  • 125mL Habanero Sauce
  • 1 Avocado
  • 1 Tomato
  • 3 Limes
  • 1 Serrano Pepper


Knife, Pan, Small Pot Spatula, Salt


To make the guacamole, slice the avocado in half, remove the pit, and scoop it into a mixing bowl. Use a fork to gently mash them to your desired level of chunky or smooth. Chop the tomato and juice one lime. Chop the serrano pepper, using your desired amount of serrano pepper depending on the level of spice for your guacamole. Add the onions, tomatoes, cilantro, jalapeño pepper, lime juice, and salt to taste, and stir together.

In a pan at medium-high heat, add the diced chicken and heat to desire temperature.

In a small pot, heat the refried beans. Stir constantly.

Heat a dry cast iron griddle or large non-stick skillet. Sprinkle some water on each side of the tortilla. Place each tortilla intro the dry pan and warm over medium-high heat for about 15-30 seconds on each side. Place them into a tortillero or a clean kitchen towel to keep them warm and soft while enjoying your meal.

On a plate, place the cooked tortillas, spread some beans, add the heated chicken, and top with crema and cojita cheese. Add guacamole to your tacos and enjoy!

Optional: Add Habanero Sauce (hot) to your tacos for extra heat.

Note: If you would like some extra acidity, squeeze some lime on your tacos,
