  4. 1/2 an avocado
  5. 1/2 zest and juice a lime

Step 1

To make the green salsa, place all the ingredients plus a pinch of salt into a blender and blend until smooth.

Mix the cream cheese with the paprika and zest of the lime. Add the chicken and fold through to combine. Lay the Street Tacos out and grate over some Manchego cheese. Spread out a tablespoon of the chicken mixture on the bottom third of the taco. Roll into a cigar shape and fasten with 1-2 toothpicks. Repeat with the remaining tortillas and chicken mixture.
