Happy Friday to you!

I was rummaging through the refrigerator last week deciding what I wanted for lunch when I thought, hmmm how about a baked avocado with something amazing inside.  I ended up tossing some rotisserie chicken in a little siracha, placing that inside the avocado, topping with a little cheese, baked it and heaven happened.

It really couldn’t be more simple friends.  Literally split your avocado, remove the pit and fill.  Bake for close to 15 minutes on 350 degrees F.

Quick and simple lunch that is totally satisfying.  Are you kids going to love this?  Maybe.  My older boys are still weird about avocado.  Still working on them.  Are you going to love this?  Yes!
