I often use leftover rotisserie chicken for the recipe. Pre-cooked chicken and canned chiles in adobo makes this dish super easy to prepare.


  • Vegetable Oil 2 tbsp
  • Onion, cut in half and then sliced thin 1 small
  • Cooked Chicken, shredded or chopped small 2 cups
  • Chipotle Chile Peppers, in adobo sauce, chopped 2
  • Adobo Sauce from chipotle peppers 1 tbsp
  • Gluten Free Tortillas for serving
  1. Heat oil in skillet over medium heat. Cook onion until it begins to soften, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  2. Add chicken, chiles and sauce. Stir well and cook, tossing occasionally until chicken is hot and onions soft.
  3. Serve with warm tortillas. Try these also with a little sliced avocado to cool the spice for a great flavor combination.

Note: If you can’t find chiles in adobo sauce, a couple of teaspoons of chipotle chile powder may be used instead. Just sprinkle onion with chile powder while cooking in oil. Then, before adding chicken, add a tablespoon or two of water to the pan. Make sure to stir well when adding chicken to ensure even coating. Cook until water is absorbed.
