Instructions

1 Prep vegetables

Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C. Peel and finely slice the red onion. Deseed and finely slice the yellow pepper.

2 Fry chicken and vegetables

Heat a non-stick pan over a medium heat with a drizzle of vegetable oil. Once hot, add the chicken breast, pepper and onion with a pinch of salt and cook for 5-6 min or until the chicken is golden.

3 Simmer

Once golden, reduce the heat to medium-low, add the chipotle powder, cumin powder, soy sauce, tomato paste and measured water to the pan, cover with a lid and cook for 10 min further.

4 Pull chicken

Once the chicken is cooked, remove the pan from the heat and, using two forks, pull the chicken until it's fully shredded. Add the grated cheese to the pan and give everything a good mix up.

5 Roast taquitos

Divide the chicken mixture between the tortilla wraps. Roll the stuffed tortilla wraps up tightly and arrange them on an oiled baking tray, seam-side down. Drizzle generously with vegetable oil and roast in the oven for 15 min or until crisp – these are your taquitos.

6 Prep avocado cream

Meanwhile, cut the avocado in half and remove its stone. Scoop the avocado out of its skin and add it to a food processor with the juice of the limes, the sour cream and a pinch of salt. Blitz until smooth. Deseed and chop the tomato finely. Drizzle the avocado cream over the taquitos and garnish with the tomato.

Tips for fussy eaters

Want it less spicy? Go easy on the chipotle!

Pro tip

The lower and slower you cook meat, the easier it will become to pull!
