  9. Heat the vegetable oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the garlic, onions, and chorizo. Cook 2-3 minutes until the onions have softened and the chorizo has rendered a little fat.
  10. Add the lettuce and sauté 2-3 additional minutes, until softened.
  11. Add the tomato-chili mixture and cook for 3 minutes, stirring constantly to incorporate.
  12. Add the shredded chicken and bring mixture to a simmer. Simmer, uncovered, until most of the liquid has cooked off, about 10-15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  13. Serve on warm corn tortillas with sliced avocado.
  14. Enjoy!
