Preparation

If you have a grill basket, prepare a grill to medium-high to high heat. Or, preheat broiler to high and set a rack in the upper third of the oven.
 
Arrange the tomatillos, onions, garlic and peppers in the grill basket (if grilling) or on a baking sheet (if broiling), spray lightly with olive oil spray and season with salt and pepper. Cook veggies until charred.
 
Transfer to a food processor and add cumin, cilantro, juice of 2 limes and honey. Purée into a salsa then remove to a bowl.
 
Rinse out the processor bowl and add avocado, juice of remaining lime and crema or sour cream. Place in a squirt bottle or dish.
 
Heat chicken with a splash or two of chicken stock in a skillet set on the grill or the stove.
 
Fill charred tortillas with chicken, cheeses, salsa, red onions, radish, jalapeño and cilantro.
