Chicken Prep

In a medium bowl or zippered storage bag mix olive oil, tomato paste, spice mix, and lime juice.  Place chicken in bowl or bag with mixture and make sure it is evenly coated.  Allow to marinate, in fridge, for 15 minutes to 3 days.


Heat a grill, griddle, or grill pan on medium-high heat, place chicken on grill and cook for 5 minutes on each side or until internal temperature registers at 165 °F. Remove from heat and allow to rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing.


In bowls layer lettuce, then remaining ingredients (bell peppers, tomatoes, onions, corn, black beans), sprinkle cheese on top, then add sliced chicken, dab with sour cream or yogurt, add guacamole,  sprinkle cilantro on top.  May also squeeze more lime juice if desired.


Hearty Eater Option:  Add cooked brown rice, sprinkled with cilantro, to bowl before adding lettuce.
