Preheat the oven 375 degrees.
Combine light sour cream, fresh cilantro, lime juice, jalapeno, avocado, salt and garlic in a food processor. Buzz until smooth, set aside.
Heat a sauté pan over medium heat. Add olive oil, diced onion and minced garlic.
Sauté for 5 minutes or until the onion is translucent and the garlic is fragrant.
Next, add the chicken tenderloins. Season with salt and black pepper.
Then, you’ll add a can of enchilada sauce.
Let everything simmer over medium low heat until the chicken is cooked through, and the sauce has reduced by half.
Then, using two forks, carefully shred the chicken into small pieces.
Assemble the tacos
Wrap the tortillas with paper towels, and warm the tortillas in the microwave for 30 seconds. Lightly spray both sides with olive oil cooking spray and lay them flat on a baking tray.
Add even amounts of shredded cheese and shredded chicken filling.
Place in the oven for 5-6 minutes, then fold the tortillas in half. This allows the tortilla to get crispy on the outside.
Cook for another 5-10 minutes in the oven.
Remove, top with lime cream and garnishes. Enjoy hot.
