  • 1 pound thinly sliced chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
  • 3 limes, juiced, divided
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin, divided
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder, divided
  • 2 teaspoons ground chipotle pepper, divided

  2. Saute red bell peppers, onion, jalapeno peppers, juice of 1 lime, 1 teaspoon cumin, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, and 1 teaspoon chipotle pepper in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat until vegetables are tender yet crisp, about 5 minutes.

  4. Layer tortillas between paper towels on a microwave-safe plate; heat in microwave until warmed, 10 to 20 seconds.
  5. Spoon vegetables and chicken onto tortillas; top with chopped tomatoes, avocado, cilantro and lime juice.
