You are going to love these easy Mexican chicken street tacos with avocado crema. They’re made with chicken, onions, jalapenos, fresh cilantro and cotija cheese! Also, they only take 20 minutes to make!



For the chicken:

  • 2 chicken breasts (about 1 pound)
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp diced jalapeno
  • 2 tbsp diced white onion
  • 3/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp rosemary
  • salt and pepper to taste

For the tacos:

  • 6 corn tortillas
  • diced jalapeno
  • diced white onion
  • crumbled cotija cheese 
  • fresh cilantro
  • avocado crema


For the chicken:

  1. Cut the chicken into very very small pieces. Cook (with the lid on) in oil over medium to high heat with the jalapeno, onion and spices. After about 10 minutes, remove the lid and cook until liquid is mostly evaporated.

For the tacos:

  1. Heat corn tortillas in a skillet with a little bit of oil over medium to high heat until they start to brown.
  2. Spread avocado crema on the tortillas then top with chicken, onion, jalapeno, cilantro and cotija cheese.


  1. I didn’t list measurements for the taco toppings because I want you to use the amount that tastes good to you 🙂
  2. If you can’t find cotija cheese, you can use a shredded Mexican blend.
