1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

Method

  1. For the marinade, mix the oil, crushed garlic, spices, salt and pepper together. Pour over the chicken and marinate for up to 20 minutes.
  2. For the salsa, mix the beans with the chilli, herbs, onion, tomato and juice. Set aside.
  3. For the avocado mash, scoop the flesh from the avocado and mash in a bowl with the lemon juice, coriander or parsley, and chilli. Season and set aside.
  4. Heat olive oil in a heavy-based pan over a medium–high heat and sauté the chicken until well browned and cooked through, approximately 4–5 minutes.
  5. To assemble, heat the tortillas and place the chicken, salsa, lettuce and avocado mash on the bottom third. Fold the tortilla sides inwards to meet in the middle, then roll up from the bottom.
