Ancho Chicken Tacos with Cilantro Slaw and Avocado Cream

This recipe sounds and looks tasty. On my list to try so I will update this post with my thoughts and recommendations at a later time.

  • 1 lb skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into 1/4″ strips
  • 3/4 tsp ancho chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin
  • olive oil or cooking spray
  • 1/8 tsp grated lime rind
  • 2 tbsp 1% milk
  • 1 ripe avocado, diced
  • 2 cups packaged angel hair slaw
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro
  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 8 (6 inch) corn tortillas
  1. Heat large skillet over high heat. Sprinkle chicken evenly with chile powder, garlic salt, and cumin. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add chicken to pan; cook 4 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove chicken from pan.
  2. Combine rind, 1 tbsp juice, and next 3 ingredients (through avocado) in a blender or food processor; process until smooth.
  3. Combine remaining 1 tbsp juice, slaw, onions, cilantro, oil, and salt, tossing to coat.
  4. Heat tortillas according to directions. Divide chicken mixture evenly among tortillas. Top each tortilla with about 1 tbsp avocado mixture and 1/4 cup slaw mixture.

(Serves 4 – 2 tacos each)
