  • 2 cans La Preferida Salsa Casera (8 oz.)
  • 1 can La Preferida Hominy (29 oz.), drained 
  • 1 can La Preferida Frijoles Charros (15 oz.)
  • 1 pkt. La Preferida Fajita Seasoning (1.25 oz.)
  • 2 lbs. chicken thighs, boneless, skinless
  • 1 white onion, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 qrt. chicken broth
  • ½ cup cilantro, chopped
  • 4 Tbsp. La Preferida Olive Oil 
  • 2 Tbsp. La Preferida Tomato Paste
  • 1 Tbsp. La Preferida Olive Oil


Preheat oven to 350º

Pat dry with paper towel. Season chicken with corn oil, ½ of the fajita seasoning, and salt. On an oven-safe baking dish, spread chicken thighs evenly, add ½ cup of water, and roast for 30 minutes.

In a large pot, heat olive oil over medium heat and cook onion, garlic, and remainder of fajita seasoning until onion is translucent. Add tomato paste and salsa casera, and simmer for 5 minutes. Add chicken broth, frijoles charros, and hominy.

Once chicken is done, pull out of the oven and let it cool for 5 minutes, then cut into chunks. Add chicken to pot along with pan drippings and cilantro. Simmer all ingredients in the pot for 1 hour, occasionally stirring with a wooden spoon and scraping the bottom. Once done, serve with warm tortillas and sliced avocado as a garnish. Thin out with more broth if needed.
