Chicken Taco Stuffed Avocados

avo1

When my so-called “frugal husband” visits Costco, he always comes home with  way more than what he intended.  I’m serious.  He, all of a sudden thinks that our kids need new clothes, finds random kitchen appliances and brings home WAY more produce than we can ever eat.

So, a few weeks ago,he drove out of the area for work, and stopped at Costco for dinner on the way home.  ( the nearest Costco is an hour away) And like usual, brought home a TON of things.  Including a bag of avocados, which I didn’t even see until about 5 days later when they were SUPER ripe.

I heart avocados with a passion.  I notice that food bloggers are always adding avocados to recipes to make them even more incredible!  – Kind of like how they add bacon to everything.   ( I mean, I think bacon is OKAY) But I LOVE avocados!

I the day that I found these avocados in our fridge, I just happened to have my go to Chicken tacos simmering in the crock pot.

My “Go to” Crock Pot Chicken Tacos  In a Crock pot add 1-2 lbs of boneless skinless chicken breasts 1 jar of your favorite salsa 1 can of beans ( black, kidney, pinto or whatever) frozen corn Put all these ingredients in the crock pot in the morning, and let simmer all day. avo06

So I filled these avocados with taco filling and baked them in the oven at 350 for about 15 minutes.  ( I also add cheese)

AND we ate this ” taco” using a spoon.  This was so rich and delicious, I can’t even say.  And of course, this is more of an idea for you to capitalize on.  I am sure your favorite taco meat recipe would work in these too! avo03
