  • 1 rotisserie chicken
  • 1/3 cup Chipotle Lime mayonnaise 
  • 1 cup shredded cheese
  • 1 tomato (sliced into ¼” rounds)
  • 1 avocado (diced)
  • 1 small red onion (finely diced)
  • 6 slices of bacon
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro (roughly chopped)
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Cook bacon slices under low-medium heat until crispy.  Remove from pan and pat with a paper towel to remove excess grease.  Set aside.
  2. Remove and shred chicken from bone.  Place in a large bowl.  Add mayonnaise and red onion.  Mix well to coat.
  3. Using a greased 8-ounce circular measuring cup, assemble stacks by adding a ¼”  layer of the avocado into the bottom, then add a layer of cheese, then add a few tablespoons of chicken mixture, and top with a slice of tomato.  Press down to pack.
  4. To plate, invert measuring cup onto a plate.  You may need to tap it gently to release.  Add crumbled bacon and chopped cilantro to the top to serve.
  5. Repeat the process to make remaining stacks.
