Happy Saturday and Happy Cinco de Mayo!

I’m a little late on getting this Mexican-inspired recipe posted for Cinco de Mayo.  However, we love Mexican food any day of the year!

All you have to do is go through my Recipe Index and you’ll find tons of Mexican recipe inspiration.  My sister-in-law is Mexican which gives me even more reason to love Mexico and its culture!

How to make Chipotle Chicken Flatbread Pizzas with Avocado Sour Cream:

  • I actually love to make my own pizza dough, but sometimes the chef needs a little help so I start with store-bought naan flatbread.  It’s something we always have on hand for a quick pizza.

  • Make a quick red chile sauce with onion, Poblano peppers, canned tomato sauce and chipotle chiles in adobo then puree with an immersion blender.  If you don’t own an immersion blender, it is the best thing ever!  (Affiliate link below.)
  • Top the flatbread with the sauce and some of the cheese.
  • Toss the chicken with some of the sauce.  These flatbread pizzas are a great way to use leftover chicken, however, rotisserie chicken works well, too!
  • Top with cooked sweet potatoes.  If you don’t have cooked sweet potatoes on hand, peel and cube a large sweet potato and cook it in salted water while the sauce simmers.
  • Add the black beans.  And of course, more cheese!

One more indispensable thing in the kitchen is a pizza stone!  Ours is well-loved, can you tell?

The Avocado Sour Cream is the perfect finishing touch.  (And yes, I seriously need to practice my drizzling technique.)
