Ingredients

  • 12 Mission® Super Soft Flour Tortillas
  • 1 ½ lb boneless skinless chicken breast cut into strips
  • 1 large onion sliced
  • 2 large sweet peppers sliced longways
  • 12 oz mushroom caps sliced
  • sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp olive oil as needed

Seasoning

  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • ½ tsp granulated garlic
  • ½ tsp granulated onion
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp sea salt

Salsa

  • 1 cup pineapple small dice
  • 1 cup mango small dice
  • ½ cup pomegranate arils (optional)
  • ½ cup red onion small dice
  • 1 tbsp cilantro finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • sea salt season to taste

Crema

  • ¼ cup sour cream or Greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • 1 juice from one lime

Instructions

  • Preheat your grill to high heat.
  • Slice the chicken breast lengthwise so they are about ¾ inch thick
  • Combine all the spices in a small bowl and mix them well.
  • Coat chicken breasts lightly with olive oil then rub the spice mixture into the chicken. Allow chicken to sit for 5 minutes absorbing the spice.
  • Slice peppers, onions and mushrooms.
  • In a large mixing bowl, toss the vegetables with 2 tbsp olive oil, sea salt and black pepper to taste.
  • Cut a piece of foil large enough to be doubled up and place on a section of your grill.
  • Place vegetables on foil lining part of the grill and cook until soft and just a little charred, stirring often.
  • Add the chicken to the grill and cook until chicken has reached an internal temperature of at least 165 degrees.
  • Remove meat and vegetables from the grill and reduce the grill heat.
  • Allow grilled chicken to cool slightly then slice into strips.
  • Grill flour tortillas briefly on each side to cook and add grill marks. Tortillas will get a little puffy as they cook.

Crema

  • Mix sour cream, heavy cream, sea salt and lime juice together in a small bowl. Allow it to sit unrefrigerated for 2-3 hours. Cover and refrigerate until needed.

Salsa

  • Mix together pineapple, red onion, cilantro and lime juice. Season to taste with sea salt.
  • Serve with your favorite toppings and enjoy!
