Ingredients for Pineapple Chicken Tacos:

  • Tortillas of choice – I used Siete Cassava Tortillas (they are gluten-free and so yummy)
  • Kite Hill Chive Cream Cheese – sounds weird but it’s an amazing combo I promise. This spread is dairy-free. If you don’t have this or can’t find it, you could use regular cream cheese or just do guacamole instead!
  • Greens of choice
  • Red cabbage
  • Pineapple
  • Chicken – I used chicken thighs, but you can use whatever you want. Or you can use salmon!
  • Avocado
  • Fresh cilantro

Oh, and just to clarify, this post is not sponsored, I just love Siete and Kite Hill and their products!

How to Make Pineapple Chicken Tacos:

These are super easy to make, but just require a lot of simple steps! First, start out by cooking your chicken as usual. This is also a really great way to use up any chicken leftovers!

When the chicken is cooking, wash and chop the cabbage and sauté it in a pan on the stove for about 5-10 minutes. Or if you prefer to eat it raw, you could do that, too!

Now cut the pineapple up into small bite-size pieces.

Once the chicken and cabbage are cooked to your liking, heat up your tortillas on the stove. This usually only takes about 2 or 3 minutes.

Now it’s time to start assembling the tacos: slather a taco with the chive cream cheese, now add greens, chicken, cabbage, pineapple, and sliced avocado. Be sure to top with fresh cilantro, too, for some added flavor and nutrition! Enjoy!
