  • 1 lb. chicken
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, diced
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 4 large flour tortillas, warmed
  • 2 cups rice, cooked
  • 2 cup lettuce, shredded
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 1/2 cup sour cream

Pico de Gallo

  • 6 Roma tomatoes, diced
  • Kosher salt
  • 1/2 medium onion, finely diced
  • 1 jalapeño, diced
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • Cilantro, finely chopped

In a large bowl or zip lock baggie, combine the first 6 ingredients. Let marinate for at least an hour.

Make the Pico de Gallo. In a large bowl, salt the tomatoes to taste. Let sit for a few minutes to pull out juices. Add all the remaining ingredients. Refrigerate for at least an hour for best flavor.

In a large skillet or grill brought up to high heat, cook the chicken. Let rest for 5 minutes. Cut into strips.

In each flour tortilla, add some of the chicken, rice, lettuce and Pico de Gallo. Serve with avocado, sour cream, lime wedges and additional Pico de Gallo.
