Honey Chipotle Baked Tacos with Lime Avocado Salsa

I can't stop the spicy + sweet combination. SO good. AND it works really well in these tacos. Canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce are one of my favorite pantry stables. The peppers bring the heat - like very hot while the adobo sauce is thick + full of rich flavors. Crazy good.

Mix it up on a sheet tray. Bake it up. Cut + mix up again. Build the tacos + bake until crispy. That easy!

And the avocado salsa is simple + fresh. A perfect way to showcase the natural beauty of the avocado - extra lime always helps too!

Honey Chipotle Baked Tacos with Lime Avocado Salsa

6-8 chicken thighs (I used chicken from Covey Rise Farms)

1/2 teaspoon each salt + pepper, more for seasoning

2 tablespoons chipotle peppers in adobo sauce

2-3 tablespoons honey

4-6 scallions, chopped

1 - 1 1/2 cups shredded Mexican blend cheese

1 small bunch cilantro, chopped + divided

1 avocado, cut into small pieces

1 lime, zest + juice

12 corn taco tortillas

olive oil

Preheat your oven to 425F. On a baking sheet tray, arrange the chicken thighs, salt, pepper + chipotle pepper sauce. Mix with tongs to fully coat the chicken. Separate the chicken so that it's in one layer around the sheet tray. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven + let cool.

Meanwhile, combine the avocado, lime zest + juice, 1/2 the scallions, 1/2 the cilantro + a pinch of each salt + pepper in a bowl. Toss to combine. Set aside.

Cut the chicken into small bite sized pieces + return to the baking sheet tray. Mix in the honey, cheese, + the remaining scallions + cilantro to the tray with the chicken. Toss everything to combine.

Heat the tortillas up slightly in a microwave or stove top. Place about 2-3 heaping tablespoons of the chicken mixture on to the center of each tortilla. Fold over + place on a cleaned baking tray. Repeat until all the chicken is filled into tortillas shells.

Brush or drizzle each shell lightly with olive oil. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are crispy + the cheese is melted + chicken is hot. Serve with avocado salsa.
