  • 8 chicken thighs, skinless & boneless
  • 1/2 cup Char Crust® Southwest Chipotle
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup sweet onion, chopped
  • 10-12 corn or flour tortillas
Cilantro mix:
  • 1/2 cup onion
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cup red thai chilies
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • 1 cup guacamole
  • 1/2 cup cotija or feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup fresh jalapenos
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges


  1. On a flat surface, pat dry all your chicken thighs. Coat the chicken in Southwest Chipotle dry-rub seasoning.
  2. Heat a large skillet on medium to high heat with olive oil. Add in your chicken and cook for 5-7 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. Chop chicken into bite size pieces. Add half of the onion to the skillet with chopped chicken. Cook for 4-5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  4. In a small bowl, mix together cilantro, other half of onion, thai chilies, and lime juices. In small bowls, set up all the rest of your toppings- guacamole, fresh cotija or feta cheese, jalapenos and limes. Set aside.
  5. Cook tortillas on a flat surface for 2-3 minutes until warmed. Assemble your tacos with chicken mixture, cilantro mixture and whatever toppings you like. Eat and enjoy!
