  • In a large Ziploc bag or large bowl, combine the chicken (or tofu), lime juice, cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, sea salt, paprika, ground coriander, and black pepper. Toss well to combine and to coat the chicken in the spice mixture. Allow to marinate 15 minutes while you prep the vegetables.
  • Add half of the oil to a large heavy skillet and heat over high heat. Add chicken to the pan and cook for 3 or 4 minutes, or until it’s no longer pink in the middle. Remove the cooked chicken to a bowl.
  • Add the remaining oil to the same skillet and decrease the heat to medium-high. Add the onion and bell peppers, stirring constantly, until cooked through, about 5 to 7 minutes.
  • Turn off the heat and add the cooked chicken back to the skillet for serving. Adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper, then garnish with chopped cilantro, sliced avocado, and lime wedges.
