Ingredients

  • 1 lbs. chicken breast
  • 1 tbs. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. fresh oregano
  • 2 clove garlic
  • sea salt & black pepper to taste
  • 1 med. red onion
  • 1 med. green bell pepper

  • 1 med. yellow bell pepper
  • 4 c. mixed greens
  • 1 med. avocado
  • 1/2 c. fresh made salsa
  • 2 oz. pepper jack cheese
  • 2 tbs. coconut oil

Directions

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!
