  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.
  2. Mix black beans, salsa, 1/2 cup cilantro, and lime juice in a bowl; set aside.
  3. Stir chili powder, cumin, coriander, brown sugar, cayenne pepper, and olive oil in a bowl until smooth; rub mixture over chicken breasts.
  4. Cook chicken breasts on preheated grill until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 10 to 12 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). While the chicken is cooking, place tortillas on grill and grill until lightly brown on both sides, 3 to 5 minutes.
  5. Transfer chicken to a cutting board and slice into long thin strips. Divide chicken strips over tortillas and top with bean mixture, lettuce, and remaining 1/2 cup cilantro. Serve with avocado, lime wedges, and sour cream.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

We loved this! I did make some changes though. I cut my chicken in half lengtwise in order to have more surface for the rub. I made the rub (omitting the cayenne for my kids) and let them sit fo...

Nom, Nom! This recipe was easy to prepare and delicious. I used leftover shredded chicken and added a 1/2 can of corn and chopped tomato to the beans.

I made this with some left over chicken from Costco one breast anf one thigh and drumstick cut up, added more salsa to the bean mixture, about 1 cup I think, and then layered the beans and then ...

Only made the grilled chicken portion. Put in a tortilla with cilantro rice and black beans. Fantastic! My whole family loved it.

This was great and we put it all in baked flour tortilla bowls. My husband especially LOVED the black bean with cilantro and salsa mix. We use fat-free yogurt with our mexi-dishes instead of s...

I made half of this recipe for Hubs and me last night. Hubs loved the seasoning on the chicken, but I felt after being grilled on a hot grill, the spices appeared to be burnt, however they didn...

This was very good. I used store bought tostada bowls. I don't have a grill so just fried the chicken on the stove. The chicken was only okay but that's because I am not very skilled at cooking ...

I love coriander so I was drawn to this recipe! It was quite tasty and enjoyed by all!
