If you know me, you know that I love Mexican food and will find a way to turn just about any recipe into a Mexican inspired dish.

Chicken salad has always been a weakness of mine, there is something about the creamy dressing and crunchy textures that I can’t seem to get enough of. So when you combine my love of Mexican food, with chicken salad and then stuff it all in an avocado… I don’t think it can get much better then that.

In this incredibly simple recipe, chopped chicken is tossed with fresh cilantro, jalapenos, red onion, green onions and red pepper. Everything is then tossed in a homemade chipotle mayo. You can use store bought mayonnaise if you prefer, but I am a big fan of making mayo from scratch with just an egg, lemon juice and olive oil. It takes less then 3 minutes to make and is so easy! I have included a link in the recipe to my favourite easy mayo recipe for you guys to try.

These would be a great appetizer or side dish to serve a crowd at a BBQ (I apologize for jumping the gun, I realize its only April). The Paleo Mexican Chicken Salad will last 2 to 3 days in the fridge, so you can make a batch and then stuff it in avocado halves over a few days for lunch or as a healthy snack. Alternatively if you aren’t a fan of avocado then this would also be delicious eaten in salad cups.
