​For the Tacos

2 pounds of boneless skinless chicken thighs
1 1/2 cups of Goya mojo marinade

  • For an hour or up to a day before, marinade the chicken thighs in the mojo. Heat a large sized stock pot, pressure cooker or lid-ed sauce pan on medium-high heat. Add the chicken with the marinade and cook for about 45 minutes or until the chicken is tender and easy to shred with a fork. By this time, the liquid should be cooked down as well.

  • 1 a medium bowl, mix the chopped Roma tomatoes, cilantro and red onion
  • To assemble the tacos, start with adding the chicken. Drizzle a little of the chipotle lime vinaigrette on top of the chicken, add a slice of avocado. Sprinkle the tomato mix then cheese on. Lastly, drizzle the Sriracha sour cream over the top and serve!
