Ingredients

  • 1 Tsp Butter
  • 3/4 Cup Red onion Sliced
  • 2 Cloves Garlic Minced
  • 1 1/2 Cups Cooked Chicken Shredded
  • 3/4 Tsp Chipotle Chile Pepper McCormick's
  • 1/2 Tsp Cumin
  • 1/4 Tsp Oregano
  • 1/4 Tsp Sea Salt Prefer Himalayan Pink
  • 1 1/2 Cups Leaf Lettuce Torn into bite sized pieces
  • 2 Tomatoes Chopped
  • 1 Avocado Sliced
  • 3 Tbsp Parmesan Cheese Grated
  • 1 Tbsp Cream Fraiche
  • 1 Tsp Lemon juice
  • 1 tsp Cream
  • 1 Tbsp Oil
  • 6 Corn Tortillas
  • 1/2 Lime Juiced

Instructions

  • Add butter to a frypan over medium high heat.  When melted add onions and cook 3-4 minutes until onions begin to soften and caramelize.  Then add garlic and cook 1-2 minutes more. Add shredded chicken, Chipotle pepper, cumin, oregano and sea salt and mix to combine. (If mixture seems dry add 1-2 Tbsp water).
  • Avocado Salad: Add lettuce, tomatoes and sliced avocados to a medium bowl. In a squeeze bottle add creme Fraiche, lemon juice and cream and shake well. Squeeze sauce lightly over salad
  • To assemble tacos: Add 1 Tsp oil to large frypan. When hot add tortillas and cook 5-10 seconds on each side. Turn over and cook another 5 seconds and stack on a paper towel. This allows the tortillas to become more flexible.
  • Add approximately 2 Tbsp of chicken mixture to each tortilla and fold over.  Repeat for all tortillas.
  • Add remaining 2 Tsp of oil to pan over medium high heat and fry tacos about 2 minutes on each side until browned and slightly crispy.
  • Stack tacos side by side on a serving platter, add a squeeze of lime juice in each taco and sprinkle grated Parmesan Cheese over the top.  
  • Serve tacos along side of Avocado Salad.
