We’ve given these tacos a Cajun twist that will take you right to New Orleans with each bite. We first coat chicken in Cajun seasoning then simmer it in our delicious salsa. We finish the tacos with beans, salsa and sour cream for a dish that’s packed with flavor, texture and adventure.

    • Prep Ahead: To save on prep at dinnertime, you can cut up the celery and bell pepper and store in resealable bags in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  • Step 1

    Season the chicken with the Cajun seasoning.  Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the chicken and cook for 7 minutes or until well browned and cooked through, stirring occasionally.  Stir in 1/2 cup salsa, the celery, pepper and beans and cook until hot.

  • Step 2

    Divide the chicken mixture, sour cream and remaining 1/2 cup salsa among the tortillas.  Fold the tortillas around the filling.
