Avocados stuffed with Tomatoes, Bacon and More

You can’t stop at 4

We went heavy on the tomato and light on the chicken in this recipe. It’s tomato season after all. The filling should be enough for three to four avocados.

Stuffed Avocados

  • 4-5 avocados (1 for the dressing, plus 3-4 for stuffing)
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • salt/pepper to taste
  • 2 tomatoes, diced
  • 1/2 red pepper, diced
  • 2-4 tbsp diced red or green onion
  • 3 slices cooked bacon
  • 1/2 chicken breast chopped (roughly 1/4-1/3 cup)

Scoop the flesh from one avocado into a blender. Puree with the yogurt, lemon juice, olive oil and some black pepper. Chop two of three slices of bacon. In a large bowl, mix dressing, chicken, pepper, onion, chopped bacon and tomatoes. Add salt and pepper as needed. Half the remaining avocados and remove the seeds. Lay flat on a plate and divide filling evenly among the avocados, mounding it into the holes. Crumble the remaining bacon on top.

    Absolutely awesome! A little chicken never hurt anyone, but the advice to go light on it to make more room to tomatoes is definitely the way to go!

    Hubby would love this, it’s his kind of food, all the way…..

  7. I’m leaving out the chicken, but this is a must.
    Thanks, you two!

  8. Love this idea! And the variations are endless.

    I’ve never stuffed avocados before. This looks fantastic. I bet if I went heavy on the chicken and lighter on the tomatoes the kids would even like it. :)

  10. You know, I don’t think I’d ever thought of an avocado as a meal before seeing this dish. How lovely, and delicious…and impossible to eat just 2…or 4, as you said!

  11. I love avocados.. How awesome to eat one all stuffed and pretty like this!

    I might have to put a little bit of chopped chilli pepper in there too ;-)

  13. This sounds like a great summer dish.

    Just had my breakfast and here I am.. craving now for avocado! Whheeew!

  15. Gasp! It’s like a delicious variation on the Cobb salad without the pesky lettuce to get in the way. Yum!

  16. It is so bloody hot here in Nashville I can’t even think of cooking….so your avocado looks so cool and delicious.

  17. Ed used to cook something similar to this as our favourite starter. Fab combo. Must get him back on it.

    Okay, catching up since I was in the middle of Wyoming without an Internet connection … these look awesome! Like a “healthier” version of potato skins. Can we call these avocado skins?? I’m going to.

  19. Okay, definitely making these. I love avocados and I also happen to love STUFFING things…and overstuffing them, at that. LOL.
