How to make Spicy Chicken and Avocado Tacos with Creamy Cilantro Lime Sauce

Step 1: Into small bite-sized pieces, chop 2 to 3 medium chicken breasts.

Step 2: Place the olive oil, garlic, chilli, cumin, onion powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Mix well, then add the chicken pieces. Toss to coat well. Cover the bowl and keep it in the fridge for at least 10 minutes or up to 48 hours.

Step 3: Over medium-high heat, place a large heavy-duty or cast iron skillet and heat for about a minute. Drizzle in the olive oil, then add the chicken. Cook for about 8 to 12 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and charred. When done, turn the heat off. If desired, finish with a squeeze of lime.

Cilantro Lime Sauce:

Step 4: To a blender or food processor, add the sour cream, cilantro, garlic, lime juice, and salt & pepper. Pulse for about 30 seconds to a minute until the mixture is creamy.

To Assemble:

Step 5: If desired, char the tortillas on the stove-top. To the warmed tortillas, add some of the chicken and top with avocado and cilantro sauce.
