Chicken and Avocado Tortilla


This is an amazing lunch or dinner choice, crunchy, delicious nutritious and full of flavor. You can make this chicken tortilla as full or as lean as you like. It has a spiciness and smokiness that comes from the poblano peppers that is mouthwatering, and the aroma is intoxicating. The avocado gives it a richness and creaminess that soothes the spiciness of the spices and leaves a lingering savory flavor. We made this recipe so you can interchange ingredients and make it your own. You can change out the chicken and add fish, turkey or shrimp. Not a meat eater, just add some amazing mushrooms and keep it all vegetarian, either way the tortilla is delicious nutritious and very healthy.
