Crunchy tortilla shell, juicy chicken and pepper strips, and homemade guacamole and black bean and corn pico de gallo–win, win, WIN! Seriously-this dish is fun, affordable, and darn tasty!
6 (8 inch) whole wheat tortillas
11 tablespoons olive oil, divided
2 cups thinly sliced yellow onion
2 cups sliced red bell peppers
2 cups sliced green bell peppers
1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons cumin, divided
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon cayenne
4 chicken breasts (about 2.5 pounds) cut into thin strips
2 cups sliced romaine
2 limes, juiced
3 cups chopped romain lettuce
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
black bean and corn pico de gallo (click link for recipe)
Preheat oven to 450. In ovensafe bowls, add whole wheat tortillas (one per bowl). Add a tablespoon of olive oil and a sprinkling of sea salt to each tortilla and rub evenly over the entire surface then mold into the bowls. Place another oven-safe smaller bowl in the center of each tortilla to hold shape and bake for 6-8 minutes.
Next in 2 large saute pans over high heat, add a tablespoon of olive oil to each pan and divide onions and peppers evenly between each pan. Season pepper mixture with sea salt, a 1/2 teaspoon cumin in each pan, 1/4 teaspoon onion powder, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, and 1/4 teaspoon cayenne in each pan. Saute pepper mix for 8-10 minutes until onions have caramelized and peppers have softened (about 8-10 minutes). Next, remove pepper mix and reserve for later. Add another tablespoon of olive oil to each pan and then add chicken, divided evenly between pans. Season chicken again with 1/2 teaspoon cumin in each pan, 1/4 teaspoon onion powder, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, and 1/4 teaspoon cayenne in each pan. Cook chicken for 6-8 minutes (until golden brown with clear running juices).
In a small bowl, mix lime juice with remaining cumin and olive oil. To assemble salad, dress greens with cumin-lime dressing and divide evenly among tortilla bowls. Top with pepper mixture, prepared pico de gallo, chicken, cheddar cheese, and homemade guacamole. Enjoy-from the first bite to the bowl, you will not want to leave the table till your plate is clean.
