Tasty Tuesday: Chile Chicken Tacos

Chile Chicken TacosThis deliciously easy Tasty Tuesday recipe is from CleanEatingMag.com. It’s low calorie, low fat, 100% clean, and high in protein. I modified the recipe for my youngest child by excluding the green peppers and onions and adding a little cheese. He thought it was “yummy” 🙂 The avocado sour cream is so good you may want to overdo it, so be warned. I curbed my desire to over-indulge by thinning it out a little bit (added a little more water) so I could use it as a salad dressing the next day. Fabulous. Enjoy!

INGREDIENTS:
Olive oil cooking spray
12 oz boneless, skinless chicken breasts, rinsed, patted dry and cut into thin strips
1 tbsp chile powder
4 whole-wheat tortillas (each 7 1/2 inches in diameter)
3 cups shredded romaine lettuce
1 medium green bell pepper (4 oz), thinly sliced
1/2 cup thinly sliced red onions
1 lime, quartered

AVOCADO SOUR CREAM
1 avocado, pitted and peeled
1/4 cup low-fat sour cream
2 tbsp water, optional
Juice 1 lime
1 clove garlic, peeled
1/4 tsp sea salt
2 tbsp chopped cilantro leaves

INSTRUCTIONS:
Prepare Avocado Sour Cream: Combine all ingredients in a blender and purée until smooth; set aside. (If not serving immediately, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)
Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and set on medium-high heat. Season chicken with chile powder. Once skillet is hot, cook chicken for 3 minutes or until no longer pink in center, stirring frequently. Remove from heat.

Warm tortillas according to package directions. Place lettuce, pepper and onions onto each torilla, dividing evenly. Spoon about 3 tbsp Avocado Sour Cream onto each and top with chicken, dividing evenly. Squeeze lime over each tortilla and serve immediately. Tortillas may be served open-faced with a knife and fork or rolled-up like a burrito.
