EASY POLLO ASADO TAKIS TACOS — With the help of Trader Joe’s Pollo Asado and a bag of Takis, you can have these savory, spicy, crunchy tacos on the table in no time.
The genius idea for these quick and easy tacos comes from one of our local taco places. They sprinkle crushed Fuego Takis on a lot of things, but their version of these Easy Pollo Asado Takis Tacos is probably the most popular thing on their menu.
I mean, the first time I tried them I wondered why I hadn’t thought of using crushed Takis as a condiment and garnish for all of my Tex-Mex dishes.
And when you use the pre-marinated pollo asado from Trader Joe’s this recipe makes a perfect week night meal for those busy days when there’s no time to make dinner.
Trader Joe’s is definitely my go-to when it comes to prepping dinner fast. And my family always loves everything I make with Trader Joe’s ingredients.
But these Taki topped chicken tacos are by far my family’s favorite Trader Joe’s based recipe.
If Takis are too hot for you, don’t worry–they’re too hot for me too. But if I don’t go overboard when adding them to my tacos, they add just the right amount of heat and crunch.
Of course, if you love spicy, then feel free to pile on the Takis, along with any of your favorite taco toppings.
At our house, some creamy cilantro lime dressing and chopped cilantro are must-have toppings, but feel free to add whatever you like.
And trust me, once you’ve tried sprinkling Taki crumbs on your tacos, you’ll start dreaming about new ways to add them to your recipes.
If you need a quick, easy recipe for a delicious, crowd pleasing family dinner, look no further than these Easy Pollo Asado Takis Tacos. They’re sure to be a hit!
