Yield: 4 servings

2 chicken leg quarters, skin removed
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
1/3 cup chopped onion
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon salt
Dash cayenne pepper
1/2 medium ripe avocado
2 tablespoons lime juice
4 whole wheat tortillas (8 inches), warmed
Fresh cilantro leaves, optional

In a large skillet, brown chicken in oil. Stir in the tomatoes, onion, cumin, salt and cayenne. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and cook for 25-30 minutes or until a thermometer inserted in chicken reads 180°, stirring occasionally.

Remove chicken. When cool enough to handle, remove meat from bones; discard bones. Shred meat with 2 forks; return to skillet. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 8-10 minutes or until sauce is thickened.

Peel and slice avocado; drizzle with lime juice. Spoon 1/2 cup chicken mixture over each tortilla. Top with avocado and, if desired, cilantro; roll up.
