Aguacates Rellenos de Pollo are avocados stuffed with shredded chicken, bacon, El Pato ~ Tomato Sauce with Jalapenos, and garnished with pico de gallo salsa and cheese. It’s easy and fast to make these tasty Chicken Stuffed Avocados.
Ways to Make Stuffed Avocados
Avocados are the perfect fruit to stuff with tasty ingredients. Slice them in half, remove the pit and fill them with your favorite ingredients. You can use any kind of meat like bacon, chicken, fish, and beef while vegetables like tomatoes, peppers, onions, and cucumbers are often used. I have seen little cubes of bread toasted and mixed into the filling or topped with bread crumbs and shredded cheese before baking.
The only limit for picking fillings is your imagination. For the most part, this tasty treat can be served cold but it is also delicious if it is baked for a few minutes.
How to Store Aguacates Rellenos de Pollo
Avocados do not store well. You can make the filling ahead of time and keep it in an air-tight container for 3 to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months. Do Not Freeze your avocados because they will turn to mush as they thaw out. Only make as many of these yummy chicken stuffed avocados as you plan to eat.
History of the Avocado
The Avocado (Persea Americana) originated in south-central Mexico and Guatemala, sometime between 7,000 and 5,000 B.C. The fruit was being harvested from the wild trees several millennia before the tree was domesticated by the indigenous peoples of south-central Mexico.
Native Mexican and Guatemala were almost currently the first to stuff an avocado with a vegetable and meat filling.
Today Avocados are cultivated in tropical and Mediterranean climates of many countries around the world. Mexico is the leading producer of avocados, supplying 32% of the world’s total avocado crop.
Our Featured Ingreadent is El Pato ~ Salsa de Tomate Con Jalapeño
The El Pato brand of Tomato Sauce with Jalapenos is the perfect ingredient to spice the chicken in this stuffed avocado recipe.
Mr. Walker’s grandfather heard of a Mexican proverb that the duck, or El Pato translated into Spanish, is good luck. El Pato is an animal that can walk on land, fly in the air, and swim in the sea. Its extraordinary adaptability became the inspiration of the El Pato brand logo and represents how they do business.
