Ingredients

  • 8 warm wholemeal tortillas, warmed up
  • 4 tbsp reduced-fat soured cream
For the chicken
  • 3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, plus 1 tsp
  • juice of 2 limes
  • ½ tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tbsp ground coriander
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 x 640g pack skinless chicken breasts
  • 2½ small red onions, thinly sliced
For the salsa
  • 200g cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 4-6 slices pickled jalapeno, drained and finely chopped
  • ½ small red onion, finely chopped
For the guacamole
  • 2 ripe medium avocados, halved and pitted
  • Tabasco, to taste
  • 1 small garlic clove, crushed
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped coriander
  • 1 spring onion, trimmed and finely chopped

Step by step

  1. Combine 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 1 tablespoon of lime juice and the spices in a large bowl. Cut the chicken horizontally, then slice into thin strips. Add to the bowl and stir to coat, adding a little seasoning. Set aside to marinate.
  2. For the salsa, mix the cherry tomatoes with the jalapenos, red onion and seasoning in a small bowl. Dress with 1 teaspoon of olive oil and a squeeze of lime juice.
  3. Whiz the avocado to a purée in a food processor. Add 2 tablespoons of lime juice, a dash of Tabasco, the garlic, some salt and whiz again. Transfer to a bowl and mix in the coriander and spring onion.
  4. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a nonstick frying pan over a medium-low heat. Fry the red onions for 10-15 minutes.
  5. Transfer the onions to a serving bowl, turn up the heat to medium-high, add a third of the chicken and fry for about 3 minutes, until cooked through, turning occasionally and seasoning with salt at the end. Mix into the onions, keep warm, and cook the remainder in the same way in 2 further batches.
  6. Dish up the warm tortillas, chicken, guacamole, salsa and soured cream in separate bowls for everyone to assemble their own.
    Tip
    Warm the tortillas briefly in a frying pan over a low heat, or wrap in foil and warm in a medium oven.
