Chicken Fajita Stuffed Avocados

May 11, 2018 | Author: Ashley McCrary

If you have followed my blog for long, you probably know by now that I am a big fajita person and I adore Mexican food. I am constantly trying to find new ways to build healthy fajitas. These Chicken Fajita Stuffed Avocado Boats are not only adorable, but so easy and tasty. These are probably one of the easiest recipes I have listed on my blog. It takes no time at all and makes the perfect dinner or lunch.

My homemade fajita seasoning is better than any store bought packet that is clean and healthy. I will add this seasoning to chicken, steak and even my eggs. It adds so much flavor to this dish and gives it a great Mexican flair. I usually will make a triple batch of this seasoning to keep on hand for easy cooking.

If I am in a busy season of life, I will make a big batch of diced chicken with peppers and onions on Sunday evening to keep in the fridge in glass Tupperware. If I have had a busy day at work and need a quick and easy meal, this is one of my go-to options . I simply heat up the chicken mixture, slice a couple avocados in half and stuff them with the mixture. I also try to prep some homemade ranch on Sunday evenings. I will grab that out of the fridge and drizzle over the top of the avocado boats along with some fresh lime juice. 

This meal is perfect if you are completing a Whole30 or if you are living Paleo or Keto. If you don’t dig the fajita mixture, feel free to get creative and add whatever combination you would like. I also love cracking a egg over the top and adding bacon over the egg and baking. It makes a great and filling breakfast. The possibilities are endless when it come to the magical avocado.
