My husband loves spicy food (I'm getting there, too; give me some time) so I reached for a heavily seasoned fresh chorizo from my local Latin market and topped these tacos with a chipotle cream and quick pickled jalapenos - both of which I made fresh at home in the time it took the meats to cook through.

Ingredients

For the Chicken and Chorizo: 
For the Pickled Jalapenos:
For the Chipotle Cream:

Directions

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Season the chicken breasts with the cumin, coriander, oregano and some salt and pepper. Arrange them on a baking sheet along with the chorizo and drizzle all of the meats with the oil. Roast the chicken and chorizo until the chicken is cooked through and chorizo are golden brown, about 25 minutes. 

While the meats are roasting prepare the pickled jalapenos. In a small pot, combine the vinegar, sugar and a pinch of salt; bring the liquids to a boil. Remove the pot from the heat, toss in the jalapenos, and let sit for at least 10 minutes. Set aside. 

While the meats are roasting prepare the chipotle cream. In a small bowl stir together the sour cream, chipotle in adobo, adobo sauce, honey or agave and a pinch of salt. Set aside. When the meats come out of the oven, thinly slice them and squeeze the juice of the lime over top. 

Serve the sliced chicken and chorizo along with the pickled jalapenos, chipotle cream, tortillas, and whatever taco toppings you like.
