Avocados + Southwest Goodness = WOW. Need I say more?! These stuffed avocados are pretty much the bomb.com and they are pretty dang cute too;) Who can resist yummy AND cute food?! They are perfect for any get together or for a fast and easy dinner. My husband and daughter both loved them. Most importantly, they are healthy! Wahoo! They have healthy fats from the avocados, lots of protein from the beans, chicken and greek yogurt, are high in fiber, high in potassium and many other vitamins and minerals… the list goes on! I hope you enjoy them as much as we did!
2 cups cooked and shredded chicken breasts
5.3 ounce container of plain Greek yogurt
4 TBSP chunky salsa
1/4 cup black beans
1/4 cup corn
4 oz can diced green chilies (had to add a little New Mexican twist!)
1 tsp lime juice
2 avocados cut in half
Mix chicken, yogurt, salsa and lime juice together. Stir in beans, corn and green chilies. Slice Avocados in half lengthwise, remove the pit and scoop out of shell. Fill pit cavity with chicken mixture and mound additional mixture on avocado surface. Garnish with optional toppings. Can sprinkle some black pepper on top also.
Let me know how you like these! Enjoy!
