One-Pan Tropical Chicken Tacos

with Pineapple Salsa and Hot Sauce Crema

It’s not always easy to eat enough fruit. Luckily, these tacos feature plenty of it—plus some bonus veggies, too—thanks to a pineapple and lime salsa (with a bit of onion and cilantro tossed in) that’s probably the easiest way to get picky eaters to eat their produce. The salsa joins warmly spiced chicken and a hot-sauce crema inside warm tortillas. Oh, and bonus alert: it can all be made with just one pan, so cleanup will be a breeze.


Produced in a facility that processes eggs, milk, fish, peanuts, sesame, shellfish, soy, tree nuts, and wheat.

Small Bowl
Large Pan
Paper Towel



Wash and dry all produce. Chop cilantro. Zest and halve lime. Halve and peel shallot. Thinly slice one half; mince remaining half until you have 2 TBSP. Halve, core, and deseed bell pepper, then cut into thin strips. Drain pineapple over a small bowl, reserving juice. Roughly chop pineapple.

Make Salsa

In another small bowl, combine cilantro, lime zest, minced shallot, pineapple, 2 TBSP pineapple juice, and juice from both lime halves. Season with a small pinch of salt.

Cook Veggies

Heat a large drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add sliced shallot, bell pepper, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender and beginning to char, 5-7 minutes. Turn off heat; transfer to a plate.

Cook Chicken

Pat chicken dry with a paper towel. Heat another large drizzle of oil in same pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken, ½ TBSP blackening spice, ½ TBSP Southwest Spice (we sent more of each), and a few large pinches of salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until chicken is cooked through, 4-6 minutes.

Make Crema

While chicken cooks, combine sour cream and hot sauce (to taste) in a third small bowl. Add water, 1 tsp at a time, until mixture has a drizzling consistency. Season with salt.

Finish and Serve

Wrap tortillas in a damp paper towel. Microwave on high until warm, about 30 seconds. Divide tortillas between plates, then fill with chicken and veggies. Top with salsa. Drizzle with crema and serve.
