Let's get grilling


1 Preheat flat top grill to 450°F.
2 Place chicken thighs into a small bowl. Season with chipotle, chili powder, cumin, garlic, salt and pepper, and oil. Mix well.
3 Place chicken thighs onto grill, and cook for 5–7 minutes on each side until an internal temperature of 165°F is achieved. Remove chicken thighs from grill, and place onto cutting board to rest.
4 Add diced pineapple, red onion, cilantro, juice of 1 lime, red wine vinegar, and honey to a mixing bowl. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper, and mix well.
5 Cut avocados in half, and remove the pit. Position a wire cooling rack over a mixing bowl. Smash avocado flesh side down onto the rack using your hand, and it will send diced avocado chunks into the bowl. Discard the peel.
6 Add remaining lime juice, and a pinch of salt and pepper to the bowl. Mash avocado lightly with a fork, and mix well.
7 Place oil onto the grill, and fry tortillas for 1–2 minutes on each side until crispy. Remove from grill.

To Assemble:

1 Place crispy tortillas on a plate.
2 Top with avocado smash.
3 Julienne chicken into strips, and place onto avocado smash.
4 Top with pineapple salsa.
5 Serve and enjoy!

Grill Tips:

Avocado Smash Hack: Slice open the avocado, and remove the pit with a chef knife. Position a wire cooling rack over a mixing bowl. Press avocado flesh side down onto the rack using your palm, and it will send dice avocado chunks into the bowl.

Using spice rubs on proteins is a great way to pack a lot of flavor when you’re in a pinch for time. You can craft special spice blends in advance which will not only save time, but also make it fun! Get creative with it!
