Paprika does a great job of imitating a smoked flavor in these mango salsa’d chicken tacos. The silky, sunny fruit shines when hit with a squeeze of fresh lime juice.

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.
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 6 ounces each)
  • Sun Basket smoky chili spice blend (chili powder - coriander - cumin - sweet smoked paprika - granulated garlic)
  • 1 organic mango
  • 4 or 5 sprigs organic fresh cilantro
  • 1 organic lime
  • 3 tablespoons pickled jalapeños (optional)
  • 8 Mi Rancho 100% corn tortillas
  • ¼ cup roasted pumpkin seeds

Make It Leaner

To save 70 calories per serving, use half the tortillas and save the rest for later. You can turn them into chips for a snack and dip them in your favorite salsa or guacamole. Or you can toast tortilla strips and use them to jazz up a salad.

Make It Ahead
The mango salsa (Step 2) can be prepared up to 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate overnight. When ready to serve, let the salsa come to room temperature as you proceed with Steps 1 and 3.

Grill It

Prepare a medium-hot fire on one side of a grill. Set the chicken breasts on the grill directly over the heat and cook, turning once, until starting to brown, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to indirect heat, close the grill, and cook without turning until lightly charred and cooked through, about 10 minutes longer.

Instructions

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

Wash produce before use

1

Cook the chicken

  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel; season with salt, if desired, and pepper and the smoky chili spice blend.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, add the chicken and cook, turning once, until slightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Reduce the heat to medium-low and continue cooking, turning occasionally, until firm and cooked through, 5 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a plate to cool slightly. Add more oil between batches if needed. Using a fork, shred the chicken into ½-inch pieces.
While the chicken cooks and cools, prepare the mango salsa.

2

Make the mango salsa

  • Trim the ends from the mango; cut away the peel, then cut the flesh away from the pit. Cut the fruit into ½-inch chunks.
  • Coarsely chop the cilantro.
  • Juice half the lime; cut half into wedges for garnish. [Juice 1 lime; cut 1 lime into wedges.]
  • If using, coarsely chop the jalapeños. Wash your hands after handling.
In a medium bowl, toss together the mango, cilantro, 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] lime juice, 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] oil, and as many jalapeños as you like. Season to taste with salt, if desired, and pepper.

3

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.

Serve

Set out the tortillas, chicken, mango salsa, pumpkin seeds, and lime wedges and invite everyone to assemble their own tacos.
