Serves 3 to 4



  1. Heat oven to 400°. Season chicken with 1/2 cup HERDEZ® Salsa Casera, salt, crushed red pepper, garlic powder, paprika and olive oil. Place in oven for about 30 to 40 minutes until cooked through.

  2. Place 1/2 cup shredded cabbage in a bowl, as well as bowls of radish, red onion, lime wedges, 1 sliced corn cob, slice jalapeños, HERDEZ® Guacamole Salsa, cilantro and feta cheese.

  3. Remove chicken from oven, and while hot, shred with 2 forks. Note: if you let the chicken sit out before shredding, it won’t shred as easily.

  4. Place your shredded chicken and toppings in separate bowls as well as your heated tortillas, assemble, enjoy!

  5. For Pico de Gallo: Mix together chopped Roma tomatoes, white onion, cilantro and lemon juice.
