  • For the pineapple salsa
  • 2 cups small diced fresh pineapple
  • ¼ cup finely diced red onion
  • 1 tablespoon finely diced jalapeño
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (from 1 lime)
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 teaspoon avocado oil (or olive oil)
  • Pinch of salt
  • For the chipotle chicken
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil (or olive oil)
  • 2 pounds ground chicken
  • 2 teaspoons chipotle chili powder
  • Freshly ground salt and pepper
  • ¼ cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • To assemble
  • 6 (8-inch) grain free tortillas* (can use Siete tortillas)
  • 2 avocados, mashed
  • ½ cup shredded purple cabbage
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Make the chicken: in a large skillet, heat the avocado oil over medium-high heat. Add the ground chicken, chipotle chili powder, salt and pepper.

  3. Cook the chicken, breaking up the meat with the back of a spoon until it is brown, about 7 minutes. Drain off any excess fat from the pan, if necessary.

  4. Remove from heat and cover to keep warm until ready to serve.

  5. To assemble: place the tortillas in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Lightly spray the tops of tortillas with nonstick cooking spray. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden brown and crisp.

  6. Carefully spread the mashed avocado on top of each crisp tortilla. Sprinkle with the shredded cabbage and a big scoop of chipotle chicken. Top with the pineapple salsa and a sprinkle of cilantro.
