2 Cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese

4 Slices Cooked Bacon, chopped

4 Green Onions, thinly sliced

Chopped Cilantro, for garnish

Directions

For the Chicken

Preheat grill to medium high heat.

Whisk together the olive oil, lime juice, chipotle powder and salt in a small bowl.  Place chicken in a shallow bowl or plastic resealable bag and cover with the marinade, ensuring the chicken is coated well.  Let marinate in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes or up to 4 hours.

Remove chicken from marinade and place on the grill.  Grill, covered, for 8-10 minutes, flipping once in between cooking, or until chicken is nicely charred and thoroughly cooked through.  Let chicken rest for 5-10 minutes and then chop into small pieces.

For the Chipotle Lime Sour Cream

Add all ingredients to a medium sized bowl and whisk well to combine.  Let sit at room temperature for up to 30 minutes.  Can be made ahead and stored in the fridge up to 24 hours in advance.

Add

Add cheese, bacon, green onion and diced chicken to each plate.   Serve topped with Chipotle Lime Sour Cream and sprinkled with cilantro.  Serves 4-6.
