  • 2 limes juiced
  • 1/2 cup salsa of your choice

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Suggested Condiments:

  • 1 medium avocado

Instructions

Chicken:

  1. Cut excess fat from chicken.
  2. Place all the chicken ingredients in a slow cooker.

  3. Pour in 1 cup of water.

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Add the cauliflower to a bowl and microwave for 3 minutes. Stir and microwave for 1 minute more.
  3. Pour cauliflower onto a dish towel or thick paper towel and pat dry thoroughly. Dump dried cauliflower back in the bowl.
  4. Add in eggs, salt, and pepper and mix well.
  5. Prep a baking sheet by laying a piece of parchment paper flat on the sheet.
  6. Pour the cauliflower mixture into 5-6 small circles depending on what size you want the tortilla.
  7. Bake for 10 minutes and carefully flip the tortillas over and continue baking for 4-5 minutes.
  8. Final step: Heat a frying pan with 1 tablespoon of coconut oil.
  9. Add the tortillas to the pan and press down to brown slightly.
  10. Add the chicken and desired condiments. Enjoy!
