Directions

1. Place your small tortillas on a plate or flat work surface, feel free to double them. Portion the avocado evenly between the tortillas. Then top each tortilla with an even portion of the chicken, red onion, cilantro and chili.

2. Drizzle each tacos with the dressing, then sprinkle on optional toppings if desired. Serve immediately.

Note: Toss the avocado dices in a bowl with a few tablespoons of lime or lemon juice to prevent them from browning. If you like your tacos warm, just heat the tortillas in the microwave for 20 seconds and briefly re-heat the chicken in a skillet.
