Description

Panuchos is a Mexican food specialty from the Yucatan peninsula and typically features a refried tortilla topped with refried beans, shredded meat, fresh vegetables and pickled jalapenos. Make your own version of this Yucatan specialty at home with this recipe for Merida-style Panuchos. Marinated in a mixture of bitter orange juice and achiote paste, the shredded chicken has a unique sweet and tangy flavor.
