Serves 6

  • 500g Elgin Free-Range Chicken Fillets
  • 3 tbsp Willow Creek Olive Oil
  • 400g Serena Italian Chopped Tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp Nomu Cajun Rub
  • 1 tsp Nomu Smoked Paprika
  • 2 tbsp garlic, chopped
  • 1/3 cup sweet corn
  • Pinch of salt
  • 6 Old El Paso Tortilla Wraps
  • Oil to coat
  • Foil to mould
  • 2 cups Lancewood White Cheddar, grated
  • Old El Paso Salsa
  • 1 ripe avocado, medium
  • 250ml Lancewood Sour Cream
  • 1 large red onion, diced
  • 2 Old El Paso Tortilla Wraps
  • 4-6 limes



  1. Add the chicken fillets, olive oil, chopped tomatoes, cajun rub, smoked paprika, garlic, sweetcorn, and salt to a slow cooker. If you like it spicy, add 2 whole red chillies. Mix all the ingredients together. Cover and allow the chicken to slow cook on high for 3 hours.
  2. Once the 3 hours are up, use two forks to shred the chicken fillets. Allow the shredded Cajun chicken to slow cook for another 30mins, uncovered.
  3. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Lightly oil your soft tortillas on each side and place the tortilla over a small ovenproof bowl. Make sure the tortilla is in the center of the bowl, place over a large piece of foil and use it to fold the tortilla into a tortilla bowl. Bake in the oven facing downward for 5 mins then remove the bowl and bake the tortilla facing upwards with the foil still intact. Allow to cool for 5mins before filling.
  4. While the bowls are baking you may prep your toppings. Mash one whole ripe avocado and add the juice from half a lime, salt, and pepper. Slice two soft tortillas into 1-inch strips and shallow fry until golden brown.
  5. Layer each bowl with the cajun chicken, grated cheese, salsa, diced onions, guacamole, sour cream, and crispy tortilla strips. Serve with a quarter slice of lime and dig in!
