Ingredients

Chicken Tacos

  • 4 Chicken Breast (cut into bite sized pieces)
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Cumin
  • 1 tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp Onion Powder
  • Juice from 1/2 of a Lemon
  • Drizzle of Olive Oil
  • White Corn Tortillas
  • Lettuce
  • Mozzarella Cheese

Avocado Mayo

  • 1/2 of an Avocado
  • 2 tbsp Mayonnaise
  • Juice from 1/2 of a Lemon
  • Small Bunch of Cilantro
  • Salt (to taste)

Toasted Spiced Corn

  • 1 cup Cooked Corn
  • 1/2 tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin
  • 1/2 tsp Salt

Instructions

Chicken Tacos

  1. Start of by cutting the chicken breast into bite sized pieces. Season the chicken with the salt, cumin, smoked paprika, garlic & onion powder, juice from the lemon, and a drizzle of olive oil. Let marinate for 10 minutes.
  2. Heat up a large skillet over medium/high heat, and place your chicken inside. Allow to brown on each side and cook through. This should take 3-5 minutes per side.

Avocado Mayo

  1. Slice an avocado in half, and dice half of the avocado into tiny pieces. Scoop out the avocado with a spoon into a bowl and add 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise.
  2. Chop up a small bunch of cilantro and add it into the bowl along with the juice from half of a lemon. Add a pinch of salt and mash it all together with a fork until it is well combined.

Toasted Spiced Corn

  1. In the same skillet you made your chicken in (without washing it out), over medium/high heat, add a drizzle of olive oil and your corn. Season with the smoked paprika, cumin, and salt. Toast the corn until both sides have browned up a little. This should take 5-7 minutes.

Assembly of the Tacos

  1. Heat up a skillet with some olive oil and toast both sides of your tortillas until they’ve gotten some color on them.
  2. Add lettuce, the chicken, any type of cheese (but I prefer mozzarella), the corn, and the avocado mayo to the tortillas. Serve.
