  • 2 cans (8 oz. each) GOYA® Tomato Sauce
  • 2 teaspoons GOYA White Distilled Vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons GOYA Minced Garlic
  • 3-1/2 teaspoons ancho chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons GOYA® Oregano Leaf
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • GOYA Adobo All-Purpose Seasoning with Pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons GOYA Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 pounds bone-in, skin-on chicken breasts
  • 12 GOYA Corn Tortillas, heated according to package instructions
  • Chopped avocados (optional)
  • Coarsely chopped fresh cilantro (optional)
  • Shredded lettuce (optional)
  • Lime wedges (optional)
  • Finely chopped white onions (optional)
  • Chopped tomatoes (optional)
  • GOYA Hot Sauce (optional)


  1. In medium bowl, mix together tomato sauce, vinegar, garlic, chili powder, cumin, oregano, and sugar. Season with adobo; set aside.
  2. Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Season chicken with adobo. Cook chicken, turning once, until light golden brown on both sides, about 5 minutes. Add reserved tomato sauce mixture to pan; bring to a boil (be careful, the tomato sauce can splatter). Lower heat to medium low. Simmer, covered, flipping once, until chicken is cooked through (thermometer will register 165°F when inserted into thickest part of breast), about 20 minutes.
  3. Transfer chicken to cutting board; reserve sauce in pan. Remove and discard bones and skin. Using two forks, shred chicken breast. Transfer chicken to skillet with sauce, mixing to combine; continue to cook until sauce reduces and blends into chicken, and mixture begins to caramelize, about 10 minutes more.
  4. To serve, spoon shredded chicken onto tortillas. Garnish with desired toppings. Yield: 12 tacos.
