  • 1 package Pollo Asado Marinated Chicken Thighs - approx. 1.5lbs per package
  • 1 16- ounce can refried pinto beans
  • 2 cups shredded lettuce, romaine or iceberg

  • 1 cup queso fresco
  • 1 bunch cilantro, chopped
  • 2 avocado, pitted and sliced
  • 2 small radishes, sliced thin, for garnish
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 8 tortilla shells of choice - Siete suggested, but any soft tortilla shell will do


  • Cook pollo asado chicken thighs according to package directions on back of package. Once done, allow to cool and transfer to a cutting board. Roughly chop using a chef’s knife, and set aside.
  • To a medium saucepan, heat refried beans according to directions.
  • Prep toppings: dice tomatoes, chop cilantro, slice avocado and radish.
  • To a medium skillet, use nonstick cooking spray and warm skillet on medium high heat.
