This is an easy to prepare meal that can be pulled together fast for those weekday nights when you need something quick and don’t want to sacrifice nutrition. Why purchase fast food Mexican when you can prepare something that has a definite Island flavor to it?
If you don’t have time or ripe avocado/papaya on hand, don’t hesitate to purchase a fresh-made salsa (look in your refrigerated section at KTA). Fresh ingredients will work best – in a pinch you could even substitute lomi-lomi salmon! Otherwise, to make the salsa just simply mix the avocado, tomato, papaya, Maui onion, cilantro, lime juice, and olive oil together and season to taste. Only add the Serrano chile if you want the heat of the pepper.
The best way to serve the tacos is family style, and everyone can assemble their taco to suit their own taste. Warm the tortillas in a slightly damp paper towel in the microwave for about 2 minutes. Warm the kalua chicken and beans in separate bowls, set out the cabbage and salsa and you’re ready to eat! To supplement the tacos you can serve the Easy Spanish Rice or more beans.
