Notes

  • To make Gluten Free: opt for corn tortillas or other gluten-free option. Also note that if you are on a strict gluten-free diet some spices can be cross contaminated. Avoid buying bulk and check packaging for gluten-free claim.
  • To make Vegan:  Swap chicken for tofu or smoked tofu, tempeh, seitan or other meat alternative.
  • I used Avocado oil as it has a higher smoke point (approx 475 F-485 F). For more information on cooking oils check out this post
  • Lining your baking sheet: You can also line with tinfoil but I prefer parchment paper as it doesn’t tear as easily making for easier clean up!
