SERVING SIZE
1/3 avocado and 1/4-cup chicken mixture
COOK TIME
12 Min

By stuffing our avocados with chicken and some fresh salsa, we can enjoy a quick and nutritious, low-carb, lunch that's full of flavor. Our Shredded Chicken Avocados have a creamy texture (thanks to the avocado!) that make 'em taste extra-yummy.

What You'll Need

  • 2 ripe avocados, halved, with seeds and skin removed
  • 1 cup shredded chicken, cooked
  • 1/2 cup fresh salsa, drained
  • 1 scallion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/8 cup reduced-fat, shredded, Cheddar cheese

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil. Place avocado, cut side down, on baking sheet. Cook for 10 minutes, remove from oven and set aside. Preheat oven to broil.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine chicken, salsa, scallion, cumin, and cilantro; mix well. Turn over avocados and spoon chicken mixture evenly over top of avocado. Sprinkle with cheese.
  3. Broil for 2-3 minutes, or until cheese is melted.

Notes

Avocados are high in monounsaturated fats, the same heart-healthy fats that you can find in olive oil and nuts. Including these fats in your diet can help you maintain a healthy lifestyle.

??? How do 2 'cados, halved (that's 4 pieces) get a serving size of 1/3 'cado? I reprocess all my recipes with my own nutritional analysis so it does not really bother me when I find a "typo".

Avocados are one of my favorite foods. This sounds totally amazing!!
