Loaded Crispy Chicken Tacos

Calling ALL my Taco Lovers as these Loaded Crispy Chicken Tacos would make you want to make every day a Taco Day!!!

We looove Mexican food and taco is our goto recipe anyday or night but there’s one thing which has to be added to it – Pace®Medium Picante Sauce.

It’s a default from our kitchen pantry to parties. I’ve served numerous snacks with it including croquettes, nachos, pizza bite, etc.

We Choose them because Pace® has a bold kick of flavor and can take any recipe from ordinary to extraordinary in seconds.

Making the Crispy Chicken:

This is The Main filling for the tacos and my secret to making it extra delicious -> using Pace® Medium Picante Sauce to coat the chicken.

Seriously, this one trick was a game-changer in the whole flavor department here. It’s minimum effort and maximum flavor (Whooop Whoop).

  1. We coated the chicken in the Pace® Medium Picante Sauce mix.
  2. Then coated it with a mix of flour + bread crumbs + cornstarch (super crispy).
  3. Then AirFryed the coated chicken but it can be easily baked (instructions in the recipe below) or even deep-fried as per choice.

Making the Tacos:

Once the chicken is ready, this part is even simpler, all you have to do is top everything on cooked tortilla shell.

  3. Add some onion, cucumber and a tablespoon of Pace® Medium Picante Sauce (Hello Flavor)!!!
  4. Then add more toppings like cucumber, sweet peppers, avocado.

I usually serve 2-3 tacos per person (adults) and I definitely and I mean definitely make some extra for parties as they disappear real quick.

So before you make these tacos, go ahead and buy Pace® – America’s Favorite Salsa for Tacos.

So whether you are doing Tuesdays are for Tacos or not, but do remember that Tacos are for Pace® !
