“This is nice for an easy brunch/lunch/supper dish. I made these up when I had a couple of avocados that needed using and some uncooked chicken left over from making another dish. You can also use some crushed garlic in with the avocado and also top with sliced tomato before topping with the cheese. I have also made this with some shredded chicken from the deli and this works well too. If your avocado is still firm just use slices instead of mashing.”
