Step 1.

Peel your onion and garlic. Blend your chipotle chilli flakes, half of your paprika and cayenne, some black pepper, your garlic, onion, a pinch of salt, cumin, oregano, cider vinegar and tomato purée in a food processor. Blend to a paste.

Step 2.

Score your chicken legs, pop them in a freezer bag and cover with your chipotle marinade. Refrigerate for a few hours to let the flavours sink in.

Step 3.

Preheat oven to 180°C/356°F.

Step 4.

Tip your frozen french fries onto a baking tray. Add your remaining cayenne and paprika along with a little salt and black pepper, then toss until the fries are coated. Remove your chicken from it's marinade and add to another baking dish. Bake both trays for about 30 mins until the fries are crisp and the chicken is cooked through.

Step 5.

Once cooked, retain the cooking liquid and pop it into a pan to heat up.

Step 6.

When your chicken is cooked, pour the cooking liquid into a pan and heat it up. Leave the chips in the oven to crisp up if they need a bit longer.

Step 7.

Use two forks to shred the chicken from the bone.

Step 8.

Add the cooked chicken into the cooking liquid and heat up until the chicken is warmed through and becomes delicious juicy pulled chipotle chicken.

Step 9.

Cut open the avocado and pop it into a food processor. Add sour cream and the juice of your lime. Blend to create an avocado crema.

Step 10.

Pop your fries in a large ovenproof dish, then cover with your pulled chipotle chicken. Grate over your cheddar cheese, then pop under a hot grill until the cheese has melted. Top with your avocado crema, jalapeños and some fresh coriander leaves. Bang. Done
