Step 1

Place first 8 ingredients in a large zip lock back and combine thoroughly. Add the chicken breasts and mix until the breasts are evenly coated. Place in the refrigerator to marinate for 2-4 hours.

Step 2

Peel and chop the mango. Rinse and drain the black beans. Chop the green onions, jalapeno and cilantro. In a small bowl, combine the lime juice and cumin until well mixed. Place the mango, black beans, green onions, cilantro, and jalapeno in a large bowl. Pour the lime/cumin mixture over and mix gently. Taste - add more lime juice if needed.

Step 3

Grill chicken breasts until thoroughly cooked. Let the meat rest for at least 5 minutes before slicing into thin slices. Place the corn tortillas in a panini grill for 30 seconds (or cook them in a dry skillet on each side for 45-60 seconds). Layer the warmed tortilla with sour cream, sliced chicken, cotija cheese, mango and black bean salsa. Serve with a side of guacamole and salsa. Enjoy.

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



These tacos are so yummy. I only marinated my chicken for about an hour and it still had plenty of flavor. I really loved the mango/black bean salsa. Everything together was excellent and I really liked it on the corn tortillas. Thank you! Made for Culinary Quest 2 - Tex-Mex.

What for a delicious dinner we had this evening! I cooked the chicken with it’s marinade after having marinated it with the first 8 ingredients. In the meanwhile I begun to prepare the tortillas and the salsa. I sliced the chicken breast for serving and served the cooked marinade as additional sauce. The sour cream had been replaced by Greek yogurt as I have this ingredient always on hand. This was a delicious dinner and our unexpected guest loved it very much as well! Thanks a lot Marramamba for this delicous dinner, I really appreciated this recipe and I know I will prepare this again!

Made these yummy tacos tonight -- we really enjoyed them. Loved the mango/black bean salsa - so nice and fresh. Served them on a corn tortilla with a slice of avocado - no need for sour cream or cheese. Also served with some rice and pinto beans on the side. Nancy : )
