- 1 tsp paprika
- 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder

- 1 tsp ground black pepper

- 16 oz skinless boneless chicken breast

In a plate, add chili powder, cumin powder, paprika, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper. Mix together.
In this plate, season chicken with the spice mixture, about 2 teaspoons. Let marinate for 15 minutes.
Heat a cast iron pan with 2 tablespoons of olive oil on medium heat. Sear the chicken on both sides until golden, charred and cooked through (about 6-8 minutes on each side).
Transfer the chicken to a plate, and slice into strips.
Heat the pan with olive oil, add bell peppers and onions. Stir-fry until the veggies are tender. Season with the spice blend and lime juice.
Warm tortillas in the oven on low heat (285°F) for 3 minutes. Remove.
Fill the warm tortillas with the chicken, avocado and veggie mixture above. Add more of your favorite toppings. Enjoy!
