Is anyone out there afraid of avocados? For a long time, I was. I thought that they were some exotic vegetable that I would never buy, never eat and never cook with. But, since I have gotten older and pinterest has opened my eyes to things that are super rad - I am in love with (or dare I say "mad" about) avocados. I now eat them on sandwiches, salads, in quac, burritos ..... I am so sophisticated!
Just recently, my brother and his girlfriend came over to bring us lunch (thanks guys, I was getting sick of the same greek yogurt that I have been eating for the last 2 months). And much to my surprise, they brought Avocado Chicken! Let me just say -
It is the perfect substitute to chicken salad (ps - I make that all the time, but there is loads of mayo in it...so it's a little heavy on the oils). You can check out the recipe on our pinterest page. I just made it last night, changed it up a little to accomodate what ingredients I had. Equally as great!
2 to 4 chicken breasts (boiled/baked & shredded)
1 tsp of light mayo
juice of 1 lime
pinch of chopped cilantro
romaine lettuce leaves
salt & pepper to taste
Whole grain tortillas
* Once the chicken is shredded, mix the ingredients together, layer them on a tortilla, lay the entire romaine leaf on top. wrap and enjoy!
Spring is the perfect time to start eating a little lighter and this recipe fits that bill. Spring is also the perfect time for baby showers, wedding showers and backyard parties. No one wants to spend a fortune on catering or a lifetime at the grill. Instead, you can whip up this recipe, offer a variety of breads and get back to your guests. No fuss, no muss!

Note from Mrs. Williams: Your note is like an infomercial for avocados and you made it all look so good that I just might double the recipe! Thanks for the ideas!
Note from Mrs. Kelly: Hmm. I do like a good guac (pronounced gwok).
