Tips to make the perfect Cheesy Chicken Taco Salad Stuffed Avocado Recipe:
- Use a very ripe avocado.
- Pre-cook chicken and let cool.
- Don't open avocado until ready to eat.
- For the most even flavor, remove avocado from peel, and cut into 1" cubes, mix with taco skillet, and refill back into peel.
- If making ahead of time, cook taco skillet and refrigerate in an airtight container until ready to serve.
Reheat in a skillet or the microwave - OR serve cold in the avocado. (This dish is equally delicious cold as it is hot for a taco salad style stuffed avocado!)
To Make This Cheesy Chicken Taco Salad Stuffed Avocado Recipe You'll Need:
- Sharp Knife
- Knife sharp enough to dice chicken and slice vegetables, that is long and heavy enough to put into avocado pit to remove it from avocado.
- Avocado Slicer
- Easy way to remove avocado from pit and add to chicken tacos. Spoon can be used, but using an avocado slicer will create more even, easy sliced avocado.
- Cutting Boards
- Taco Seasoning
- If you're following a strict low carb diet, or want to use your own taco seasoning, you'll use 2 tbsp of your favorite taco seasoning.
- If using a pre-packaged taco seasoning pouch, one pouch is about 2 tbsp.
- Large Nonstick Pan
- For the best pan fried chicken breasts for your chicken tacos, chicken should cook quickly at a high temperature.
- To get juicy chicken with lovely browning, use a large pan that won't be crowded when adding chicken and vegetables to it - crowding your pan will cause the chicken and vegetables to boil rather than fry.
