Units Scale
  • 1 tsp Avocado oil
  • 2 cloves Garlic (Minced)
  • 1/2 Bell Pepper (Diced)
  • 1/2 cup Shredded Chicken or Turkey (See notes)
  • 2 tsp Ground Cumin
  • 2 tsp Water
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Pepper
  • 1 Handful Plantain Chips (See notes)
  • 2 Handfuls Sweet Potato Chips (See notes)
  • 1/2 cup Cashew cream sauce ( Fresh made or reheated so it's slightly warm (via microwave or stove top))
  • 1/2 cup Guacamole
  • 6 Cherry Tomatoes (Cut in quarters)
  • 2 small Green onions (Diced)


  1. Place a medium size pan over med-high heat.  Once it's hot add the avo oil, garlic, and bell pepper. Saute until peppers begin to soften. Next add in  the shredded chicken, cumin, water, and salt and pepper. Mix this and cook until the meat is heated through.
  2.  Place the handfuls of plantain and sweet potato chips on a large plate.  Sprinkle the meat  mixture over the top of the chips, followed by the cashew cream sauce, guacamole, tomatoes, and green onions.
  3. Serve while still warm.


You can use a fresh chicken or turkey breast for this recipe by slicing the breast thin, cooking it, and shredding it with a fork before continuing with the recipe directions. If you do this omit 1 tsp of water as the chicken will very moist.

 Plantain chips can be found in the bulk section of some grocery stores. Try and make sure they are baked with no additives (aside from salt). You can do the same thing with the sweet potato chips but you will probably find them in the chip isle.  Or you can bake your own chips, the method is the same but I recommend making them separately as they might have different cooking times.  Cut even, thin, slices and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment (toss the sweet potatoes in oil first). Bake at 350F for 20 minutes or so ( flipping half way through). You'll want to watch them closely so they don't burn. Cooking time will vary depending on how thin you sliced them. When done allow them to cool before using.
