These Cheesy Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Avocados are a mouth-watering worthy blend of buffalo wings and guacamole! What's not to love?
Cheesy Buffalo Chicken Stuffed AVOCADOS FTW. Can you even?
Seriously, these stuffed avocados are SO good. It's the perfect combo of two of our favorite things buffalo chicken wings and guacamole. Plus the buffalo ranch drizzle on top really puts these over the top.
Here are a few tricks to make these come out perfect:
How To CHOOSE THE RIGHT AVOCADOS
You’ll need big avocados for this, specifically 4” x 3" but we don’t expect you to take a ruler to the grocery store. Could you imagine folks’ faces when you’re standing there in the produce aisle measuring avocados??
No, just go by how it looks…it should fill your palm as well.
Check out this wikiHow article to make sure you are grabbing the best avocados your local grocer has to offer. The TLDR is that you should choose avocados that are heavy and firm with just a very slight give when squeezed.
PRO-TIP: Once you have perfectly ripe avocados simply pop them into the refrigerator for up to 4 days to keep them at peak ripeness. If you leave them on the counter they will become mushy fast. Don't worry though, toss those mushy avocados into a bowl with a bit of pico de gallo and make guacamole!
SHORT ON TIME? USE A ROTISSERIE CHICKEN
Best hack ever, if you’re short on time and can’t boil your own chicken grab a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store. Just be sure to remove the skin.
HOW TO SERVE BUFFALO CHICKEN STUFFED AVOCADOS
As an appetizer/party food or as a meal with a side salad on the side or even by themselves if you just want something lightish.
