Chicken Tacos – Traditional for Trio
Oil, for deep-frying
4-6 (6-inch) La Banderita Corn Tortillas

1 pickled serrano
3 cups chicken, boiled, chopped

1. In a deep fryer or large pot, heat oil to 375°F. When at boiling point, drop in one tortilla at a time, place tongs in the center of tortilla and fry until golden brown. You may have to pinch each side to flatten the “pillow” effect of the flour shell. Remove and drain on a paper towel until ready to serve.
2. In frying pan, heat oil, add chopped onion, tomato puree, pickled serrano pepper, and boiled chicken; cook until flavors come together. Remove serrano pepper before serving.
3. In tortilla shell, add the chicken mixture then layer on the remaining ingredients. Serve immediately.
