In camp

Heat oil in pot on medium heat, chop and add onion, and sauté until it softens (3 minutes). Add seasoning, three tablespoons water, and chicken. Simmer until water is evaporated and meat is heated through (about 5 minutes). Meanwhile, mash avocado (in a zip-top bag to save a dish); mix in sauce. Scoop chicken into tortillas; top with cheese and guacamole.
