Sun Basket is proud to source the organic ingredients indicated below. On the rare occasion we are unable to meet our organic promise, we'll put a note in your bag.
  • Chicken options:
  • 2 to 4 boneless skinless chicken thighs (about 10 ounces total)
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 6 ounces each)
  • 1 cup cooked pinto beans
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • Sun Basket mole poblano blend (ancho chile powder - sesame seeds - granulated garlic - coconut sugar - cocoa powder - sweet smoked paprika - cinnamon)
  • 1 organic lime
  • 4 to 6 organic radishes (about ¼ pound total)
  • ½ cup organic Greek yogurt
  • 8 Mi Rancho 100% corn tortillas
  • ¼ pound organic shredded green or other cabbage

Chef's Tip

You can turn your remaining tortillas into chips: Heat the oven to 350°F. Cut the tortillas into wedges. On a sheet pan, drizzle the wedges with 1 to 2 teaspoons neutral oil, season generously with salt, and toss to coat. Bake until crisp, 10 to 12 minutes.

Make It Ahead
The chicken mole (Step 1) can be prepared up to 1 day ahead. Let cool, then cover and refrigerate overnight. When ready to serve, gently rewarm the chicken mole, adding 1 tablespoon water as needed to loosen it, as you proceed with Steps 2 and 3.

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Cook the chicken mole

Prep and cook instructions are identical for both chicken options.
  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel. Cut the chicken crosswise into 1-inch-thick strips, then cut the strips crosswise into 1-inch cubes. Season lightly with salt and pepper.
  • Rinse the pinto beans.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned but not yet cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the beans, tomato paste, and mole poblano blend and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
Add 1 cup [1½ cups] water and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is thickened and the chicken is cooked through, 5 to 8 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
While the chicken cooks, prepare the rest of the meal.


Prep the radishes; make the lime yogurt

  • Zest and juice the lime, keeping the zest and juice separate.
  • Trim the ends from the radishes; cut the radishes in half, then cut the halves into thin half-moons for garnish.
In a small bowl, stir together the yogurt, lime zest, and 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] lime juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Warm the tortillas

On the stovetop directly over a flame, or in a dry medium frying pan over medium heat, warm the tortillas, turning once, until just pliable and warmed through, about 30 seconds per side. Transfer to a clean kitchen towel, cover, and keep warm.


Set out the tortillas, chicken mole, radishes, cabbage, and lime yogurt and invite everyone to assemble their own tacos.
