This simple baked avocado is not only delicious and filling, but literally takes minutes to prepare!  I tossed some rotisserie chicken in a little siracha, placing that inside the avocado, topping with a little cheese, baked it and heaven happened.

How To Pick an Avocado

Fresh avocados do not ripen on the tree, they ripen or “soften” after they have been harvested. Fresh avocados are unique from some of the other varieties of avocados because they can change from a dark-green color to a deep purplish almost black hue when ripe.

Hold an avocado in the palm of your hand.  Gently squeeze without using your fingertips.  If the avocado is firm, you know it is NOT ripe.  They will also have a brighter green skin. If the avocado yields to firm gentle pressure you know it’s ripe and ready-to-eat. Ripe, ready to eat avocados may have a darker color but color can vary so it is best to go by feel as well as color. It will feel lightly soft but it will not feel “mushy” to the touch.
