Avocado Chicken Bites – Need a fun chicken appetizer for a party or get together. These are filled with fresh avocado, spicy salsa chicken, and topped with cilantro. Great for snacking or entertaining!
It is hard to believe that Mother’s Day is this weekend!! Are you ready? Did you remember to order mom a present or flowers, or at least put a reminder on your phone to call her on Sunday? I got my mom something I hope she is going to like, but I am seeing her in a couple weeks, so I am not sharing what it is yet. Can’t spoil the surprise!
Mother’s Day seems to be known for brunch. We often do a big breakfast at our house with waffles or pancakes topped with fresh berries and homemade whipped cream. A meal I look forward to most of the year. And the fact that I just get to lounge around while it is made makes it even better! But sometimes you want other Mother’s Day brunch ideas, right? Especially if you are feeding a crowd!
Well today I am here with a Mexican appetizer you can make any day of the year. But it is so simple that even dad and the kids can make it for mom without any help! I recently discovered Simply Avocado. It is a new line of pure wholesome avocado dips and spreads from the people who make Wholly Guacamole. It is made with real hand-scooped Hass avocados and has just 4 or less other ingredients.
Simply Avocado comes in 5 varieties – Sea Salt, Chunky Avocado, Garlic and Herb, Roasted Red Pepper, and Jalapeno & Lime. You can find them in the produce department of Walmart and Alberstons stores or online at Mexgrocer.com They are expanding and continuing to grow, so keep an eye out and other grocery stores too!
Mexican food is probably my favorite thing ever, but Mexican appetizers can be tricky. Everything thinks of chips and salsa or guacamole. But what about something else? So these chicken bites are perfect! A simple chicken appetizer you can make for snacking, brunch, as an appetizer, to bring to party or you know, just make for lunch.
These chicken bites are so easy, thanks to Simply Avocado. All you have to do is fill a tortilla chip cup with your favorite variety of the avocado spread. Really all of them work! I went with the Chunky Avocado for these, but have been snacking on the Garlic & Herb like crazy lately. Plus you never have to wait or guess about the ripeness of an avocado.
The chicken is the hardest part, and you can make that super easy by using a rotisserie chicken. Just toss with a little salsa and you are done! I baked chicken with salsa and then shredded it once it was cooked. But if you want to take a short cut, no one is going to have a clue! Then just top with a little fresh cilantro and you are done!
Mom is going to love these little Mexican appetizers, and you are going to love how easy they are to make. These chicken bites are my new go to when we have to go to a pot luck or get together. They travel really well and always disappear quickly!
