Avocado Filled with Chicken (Aguacate Relleno de Pollo)

Aguacte relleno de pollo

I made this Avocado Filled with Chicken two weeks ago, but somehow never got around to posting it. This recipe is so simple, yet so delicious.

If you have your own homemade roasted chicken…perfect. If not, use your favorite store bought chicken instead. It is also great way to use your leftover chicken. These stuffed avocados can be served as an appetizer or as a salad.

Buen provecho!



  • 2 servings
  • 1 avocado, cut lengthwise
  • 2 cups cooked chicken, shredded
  • 2 tablespoons grated onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 cup crema fresca or creme fraiche
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • 1 teaspoons fresh lime juice
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 small tomato, finely chopped


  1. In a bowl, combine chicken, cumin and paprika.
  2. In a small bowl, combine crema fresca, mayonnaise, ketchup, lime juice, salt, and pepper.
  3. Add small bowl mixture to chicken mixture, tossing gently to coat. Cover and chill.
  4. Fill the avocados with the chicken mixture, top each avocado with tomato and sprinkle with chopped cilantro. Serve immediately.

Wow, Erica, that looks amazing and Alexis would go nuts over it. She gets a stuffed avocado dish at our favorite Mexican place that she adores. This is a wonderful use of that “leftover rotisserie or bbq chicken” that we so often have.

If you smsh it all and get an arepa you can do a Reina Pepiada from venezuela. The chicken/avocado combo is really delicious and you did a great job.

I love fresh avocado. I’d like to learn how to use avocados more in my cooking.
