All aboard the joyful lunch express! I’m serving up Chipotle Pulled Chicken in Avocado Boats that’s a serious cinch to make. You’re the captain of your delish-ship: you can choose to kick up the heat by adding extra chipotle peppers, or mix in a few tablespoons of mayo for a creamier chicken salad-like consistency. Also, it’s an easy recipe to scale up or down depending upon whether you’re dining alone or feeding a larger crowd. Oh, and if you love a hearty, smoky, flavorful wrap sandwich like me, you can seamlessly transform this dish into just that. Simply mash and spread the avocado on a tortilla (or lay down sliced avocado), layer your chipotle chicken on top, along with some extra adobo sauce, and roll it up. So GOOD.
