Chicken Tacos with Avocado Cream Sauce and Lime Slaw

Have you ever wished after you eat dinner that there was room for more? That's how I felt after eating these tacos tonight. They were very easy to make, super yummy and definitely were filling! I love how the taste of lime is present in all the different toppings. This is one of those that makes the "Will definitely make again list."
 For the chicken:
1 1/2 pounds chicken breasts, cut into strips 
1 1/2  teaspoon ancho chile powder 
1 teaspoon garlic salt 
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin 

For the avocado cream sauce:
1/2 teaspoon lime zest
4 Tbsp fresh lime juice
 1/2 cup light sour cream  
4 Tbsp milk  
1avocado, diced

For the Slaw:
1 Tbsp lime juice
2 cups packaged cole slaw 
1/2 cup sliced green onions  
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 jalapeno, diced (you can leave this out if you don't like your food spicy) 
1 tablespoon olive oil 
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 tsp pepper 

corn tortillas
*extra limes if desired for squeezing onto the tacos 

Heat a large skillet over high heat. Sprinkle chicken with chile powder, garlic salt, and cumin. Rub into the chicken. Cook the chicken in the skillet for 5 minutes, or until it's cooked through.

In a blender, combine lime zest, 4 tablespoons of lime juice, sour cream, milk and avocado.Mix until smooth. Set aside.

In a bowl, combine 1 Tbsp lime juice, slaw, green onions, cilantro, oil, salt and pepper. Toss to coat.

Fry the tortillas in oil until crispy. Place chicken in the tortilla. Add avocado cream sauce and slaw to the top of each taco. Squeeze extra lime juice on them if so desired!
