  4. 2-3 teaspoons chipotle chili powder, use to your taste
  5. 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  6. 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  7. 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  8. 1/4-1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper, use to your taste
  9. 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  10. 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  11. 12 hard shell tacos (see notes for homemade option)
  12. 2 cups shredded Mexican cheese
CILANTRO LIME RANCH
  1. 1 cup sour cream or plain Greek yogurt
  2. 3/4 cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped
  3. 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  4. 1 teaspoon onion powder
  5. 1/4 cup pickled jalapeƱos, chopped + 2 tablespoons brine
  6. juice from 2 limes
  7. 1 teaspoon kosher salt
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over high heat. When the oil shimmers, add the ground chicken and onion. Cook, breaking up the meat as it cooks, until the chicken is browned, about 5 minutes. Add the chipotle chili powder, paprika, cumin, garlic powder, red pepper flakes, oregano, and salt. Add 3/4 cup water. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer until the sauce has thickened slightly around the chicken, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in 1/4 cup cilantro. 
  3. Line the taco shells up on a sheet pan or in a 9x13 inch baking dish. Transfer to the oven and bake 5 minutes. Evenly divide the meat among each taco shell and top with cheese. Bake 10 minutes, until the cheese has melted.
  4. Meanwhile, make the ranch. Combine all ingredients in a glass jar and shake or stir until creamy. 
  5. Serve the tacos topped with ranch, avocado, red onion, and any other desired toppings.
