Chipotle Lime Chicken Flatbread Tacos

Monday 8 April 2019

We are huge fans of Tex Mex in our house, especially tacos!  We love our Tacos.  I will take a Taco any way, any how.

Especially when they are homemade.  There is something about making them yourself that makes them tastier! 

My husband however doesn't like eating hard or really crunchy things.  I usually do soft taco boats, or use soft tortillas these days.

To be honest, I have broken a tooth before on a tortilla chip, so as you get older, softer is probably a better way to go, and a lot easier on your teeth!

I especially love baked Tacos . . .  Tacos that you fill and then bake in the oven until all the flavours meld together and everything is scrummy yummy! 

But then again, I will take a taco any way I can get it!

I recently discovered the Deli Kitchen's folded flat breads.  These are really innovative and delicious soft flat breads that are very convenient to use, fill and eat! 

For these tasty Tacos today I used their Corn Folded Flatbreads.  They come six to a pack and are soft and delicious!  They are perfect for these kind of tacos.  

At only 113 calories per flatbread thin, they are lower in calories than traditional crisp taco shells (which have been fried you know!) containing 19.9g of carbs, of which only 1.3g are sugars.  Low in fat and saturates I think they are a fairly healthy choice!

I find them to be delicious and easy to use.  You can't lose! 

Today I used leftover cooked chicken breast meat to make a fabulous Chipotle Lime Chicken filling!

It is a really simple filling to make . . . just chopped chicken, some chipotle chili in adobe sauce, a bit of mayonnaise, tomato salsa (you pick the heat) and some lime juice . . .

I layered that in the folded corn flatbreads with some packaged four cheese blend, but you can easily grate your own cheese, some Mexican Spicy Jack would be fabulous.  

I just used what I had on hand . . .

I do like a tiny bit of crunch myself, so I did crumble some tortilla chips and sprinkle some on the top of each taco . . .  one per taco did the job perfectly . . . they ended up just slightly crunchy without being overly hard.  In short perfect.

You don't need to bake them for very long.  Less than half an hour, which is just enough time to make your go-withs!

I have included directions to may your own Chipotle Cream, which is the perfect accompaniment!

I sprinkled the finished tacos with some finely sliced spring onions when I took them out of the onion.  Scrumptious . . .

And then served them with some of that Chipotle Sour Cream sauce, some guacamole (I adore guacamole) and additional salsa!

Oh boy, that was one very VERY tasty mouthful!  I could have eaten all six myself, but I didn't.  I promise you.  I shared these with my husband, no word of a lie!  He thought they were really good too!

Chipotle Lime Chicken Flatbread Tacos

prep time: cook time: total time:
A wonderfully  spicy chicken taco filling tucked inside some Deli Kitchen Corn Folded  Flat Breads and baked.  Deliciously served with a Chipotle Sour Cream Sauce, Guacamole and Salsa.


  • 200g chopped cooked chicken breast meat (2 cups)
  • the juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1 TBS Chipotle in adobe sauce
  • 3 TBS mayonnaise
  • 3 TBS Tomato salsa
  • 1 tsp Mexican spice seasoning (I used Swartz Mexican Street Food seasoning)
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • 6 Deli Kitchen Corn Folded Flat Breads
  • 4 cheese blend as required
  • 6 Tortilla chips, crumbled
For the Chipotle Sour Cream Sauce:
  • 120g sour cream (1/2 cup)
  • 2 tsp Chipotle in adobe sauce
  • 2 tsp lime juice
  • 1 small clove garlic, minced
  • pinch salt
You will also need:
  • prepared guacamole
  • prepared salsa
  • chopped spring onions


  1. Preheat the oven to 200*C/400*F/ gas mark 6. Have ready a baking dish large enough to hold all your tacos.
  2. Using a fork, mash together the chicken, lime juice, salsa, mayonnaise, chipotle, Mexican seasoning and salt and pepper to taste.  Open your flatbreads slightly.  Place a couple of tablespoons of four cheese blend on one side.  Top with 1/6th of the chicken mixture and then another couple of tablespoons of cheese blend.  Divide the crumbled tortilla chips between them, sprinkling them on top of the cheese. Place the filled flat breads into the baking dish and cover with a sheet of foil that you have sprayed with a nonstick spray.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes until heated through and the cheese has melted.
  4. While the tacos are baking, make the chipotle sour cream sauce, by whisking all of the ingredients together.
  5. Remove the tacos from the oven, sprinkle with chopped spring onions and serve with the sour cream sauce, guacamole and salsa for spooning on top.  Delicious!

I love these Deli Kitchen Folded Flat Breads, both the Corn ones and the Brioche ones.  Totally yummy!  You can buy them at Sainsbury's here in the UK.    Their delicious range also includes Sliced Focaccia, Plain Subwich, Skinni Wraps and three kinds of sandwich thins. 

 As a diabetic I do try to watch my carb intake most of the time and I have found these thinner, healthier options really helpful in doing that, plus they are also delicious.  I can have my sandwich and eat it too!  

You can find their products in a variety of different shops, to find out which products are available where, do check out their website.

    1. I really love their flatbreads Monique. They are so tasty and lower in carbs and calories as well! Perfect for me who enjoyed bread but needs to watch my intake! xoxo

  2. I made this one for dinner tonight. I didn't have the fancy flatbreads, but I used soft corn tortillas. I also did not have Chipotle in adobo sauce, so I improvised with some cayenne pepper and smoked paprika and the cream sauce was really lovely and perfect with these.

    They were pretty easy to put together and quick to bake - just enough time to prepare the accompaniments and set the table. I like recipes that give you time to do things, rather than require you to be an octopus to juggle everything at the end. These were tasty and something I will make again.

    1. I loved these when I made them Marie. I have not made them in a long while now. I need to make them again soon, maybe when Cindy and Dan come over sometime. We don't get those folded flat breads here either, but, like you, I will improvise! Thank you so much for taking the time to make and review this recipe! Pleased that you enjoyed it! xoxo
