  1. Heat a medium skillet on medium heat, add avocado oil and cook the ground chicken until it's crumbled, about 10 minutes.
  2. After about 10 minutes of the ground chicken cooking, stir in the water and seasonings (chili, garlic, onion, red pepper flakes, oregano, paprika, cumin, salt, and black pepper). Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes or until an internal temperature of 165°F or 74°C
  3. While the ground chicken is cooking, prepare the guac. In a medium bowl, mash together avocado, lime juice, cilantro, onion, tomato, garlic, salt, and hemp seeds. Cover the guac and refrigerate while the ground chicken cooks. 
  4. To serve, transfer the cooked ground chicken to serving bowls. Top with Greek yogurt, guacamole, then lettuce, and cheddar cheese. Finally, drizzle the hot sauce (optional) over the top to your liking. Enjoy!



  • Replace seasoning spices for chicken with a pre-mixed store-bought taco seasoning.
