Method

STEP 1 

Combine the paprika, ground coriander, ground cumin and the chilli powder in a small bowl. Place the onion, combined capsicum, half the oil and one-third of the spice mixture in a bowl. Toss to coat. Place the chicken in a separate bowl with the remaining spice mix and oil. Toss to coat.

STEP 2 

To make the guacamole, combine the avocado, lime juice and coriander in a small bowl. Season. 

STEP 3 

Heat a frying pan or chargrill over medium-high heat. Cook the capsicum mixture for 5 mins or until just softened. Push the capsicum mixture to the edges of the pan. Add the chicken and cook, stirring for 3-4 mins or until cooked through. Transfer the chicken mixture to a bowl.

STEP 4 

Add the black beans, corn and rice to the pan. Cook, stirring, for 2-3 mins or until combined and heated through. Return the chicken mixture to the pan and stir to combine. Transfer the rice mixture to a serving bowl. Squeeze lime halves over the rice mixture. Sprinkle with coriander leaves.

STEP 5

Heat the tortillas following packet directions. Divide among serving plates. Top with the rice mixture, guacamole and yoghurt. Serve with the lime cheeks. 

Tip: swap the chicken for 200g sliced mushrooms for a vegetarian option.
