Heat half of the coconut oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add sliced bell peppers and onion, and cook until tender. Add chopped garlic, and cook for 1 minute. Remove peppers and onions from pan and set aside.

Add remaining coconut oil to the pan; heat over medium-high heat. Add chicken, and cook for about 7-8 minutes. Add in all spices and let simmer with a splash of water for 5 minutes. Add peppers and onions back in to the pan. Lower heat and let simmer for 5 more minutes.

In a separate bowl, mix avocado and salsa until well blended.

Arrange a bed of spinach or lettuce on a plate, and top with chicken and veggies. Spoon avocado mixture on top, sprinkle with cheese, and enjoy!
