¾ cup canned crushed fire-roasted tomatoes

¼ cup chicken stock

½ teaspoon kosher salt

3 cups shredded rotisserie chicken

10 six-inch corn tortillas

2 ripe avocados, sliced

¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro

½ cup diced red onion

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

1 cup roughly chopped sweet onion

2 garlic cloves, minced

3 tablespoons pureed chipotle peppers in adobo

1 teaspoon dried oregano

½ teaspoon ground cumin

Crumbled cotija cheese

1 lime, cut into wedges[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]


Heat a large skillet over medium. Add the oil and sweet onion and sauté until tender, stirring occasionally (do this for about 4 minutes). Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Stir in the chipotles, oregano and cumin, and toast for 1 minute. Add the tomatoes, stock and salt. Bring to a simmer and let cook for 7 minutes.

Transfer the tomato mixture to the bowl of a blender and puree until smooth. Return the sauce to the pan over low heat. Add the chicken and cook for 5 minutes. Taste and add more salt if necessary.

Warm the tortillas by placing them directly over a gas flame (this allows the edges to char), transferring to a plate and covering with a towel once each is finished. To assemble, top the tortillas with the chicken and garnish with the avocado slices, cilantro, red onion and cotija. Serve with a lime wedge for squeezing.
