Today I have a really quick and easy take on chicken and avocado enchiladas where the chicken and avocado enchilada filling is served stuffed in cool and creamy avocados! The recipe is as simple as mixing a mashed avocado with chicken, salsa verde and corn to make the filling which is stuffed into halved avocados. You can make the chicken enchilada mixture however you like so feel free to use a tomato or red chili based sauce instead of the avocado and salsa verde sauce, omit the corn, add beans, etc. Serving the chicken enchiladas in avocados instead of in tortillas is fun, it eliminates the gluten and it makes for a nice light meal!
