What You’ll Need:

  • 1 lb package of chicken tenderloins
  • 1 package Old El Paso Chipotle Mexican Cooking Sauce
  • 1/4 cup pickled jalapeños
  • 4 oz. monterey jack cheese, shredded
  • 8 flour tortillas
  • 1/4 medium onion, sliced

Prepare your chicken with salt and pepper to both sides. Place in a nonstick skillet coated with 2 – 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Cook the chicken on medium heat. Add the sliced onions to the pan and sauté while the chicken cooks though. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Once the chicken is no longer pink in the middle, remove from the pan and shred. Place the shredded chicken back into the sauce pan and reduce to low heat. Add the package of Old El Paso Chipotle Mexican Cooking Sauce and heat through for about five minutes.
