Spicy Chicken and Pineapple Tacos

3 Spicy Chicken and Pineapple Tacos on a black plate

A completely delicious way to use ground chicken – spicy tacos! Full of smokiness, sweetness, color, balance, and texture. Everything you need in your taco life!


  • 2 TBS vegetable or grape seed oil
  • 1/2 a red onion, chopped
  • 2 TBS of canned chipotle in adobo – more if you want it spicier and smokier
  • 1/2 C diced pineapple, plus plenty more for topping
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • kosher salt
  • 1 TBS chili powder (I use this kind from my shop, any kind will do)
  • a small drizzle of honey
  • Broccoli Stem Slaw, for topping
  • 68 flour tortillas, charred on your gas burner or in a dry skillet


  1. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat, add the onion and season with salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until just beginning to soften. Add the chipotle in adobo, 1/2 C of pineapple, and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, for a few minutes.
  2. Add the chicken, season with more salt, and  cook, breaking it up with a spoon and stirring, until no longer pink. Stir in the chili powder and drizzle of honey, taste and season with more salt if needed.
  3. Spoon the chicken mixture into charred tortillas, top with Broccoli Stem Slaw and more pineapple, and serve!
