spicy chicken, spinach & tomato stuffed avocado with a sriracha-greek yogurt sauce

Did you know that "eating clean" can taste like the best thing ever? And look like this? 

Yeah. Drool-worthy. 

I created this stuffed avocado meal with the 4-week challenge in mind, but let's be real -- I could eat this every day, challenge or not. 

I LOVE avocados. Most of us do, right? They're a gift from nature! Scooping a bit of one out and combining it with some other delicious ingredients like chicken, tomato, spinach, greek yogurt, and spices just makes sense. It's easy too!

Cut a large, ripe avocado in half and remove the pit.

Scoop out the flesh, leaving about a half inch of avocado still there. Add what you scoop out to a bowl with about 2 cups of shredded, cooked white meat chicken. I used the breast meat from a store-bought rotisserie chicken. If needed, find a simple method for shredded chicken here.

Then, add the rest of your filling ingredients to the bowl: 1 egg, 1/4 cup greek yogurt, 10-12 grape quartered grape tomatoes, 1 cup finely chopped spinach, and spices (garlic powder, chili powder, cayenne, salt, and pepper). 

Mix well.

Scoop as much of the mixture as you can fit into each avocado half and place on a foil-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle on a bit of extra chile powder for color and flavor. (Side note: you'll probably have some leftover chicken mixture... I just baked the remaining mixture in a ramekin and had it plain the next day for lunch. You could also have the leftover in a wheat wrap).

Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes, or until warm. Meanwhile, make your sauce. Combine 2 tbsp greek yogurt with a tablespoon of sriracha. Add in about a tablespoon of almond milk (or coconut milk or regular milk), or until desired consistency is reached. 

Pull those delicious babies out of the oven. 

Drizzle the sauce overtop and enjoy!
