Kitchen Equipment Needed

  • Oven
  • Grill or Stovetop
  • Pan:
  • Whisk
  • Baking Dish
  • Cutting Board and Knife
  • Small Bowl
  • Measuring Spoons
  • Spatula or Spoon
  • Oven Mitts
  • Garnishing Tools


  • Two ripe avocados, each of which has been half and pitted.
  • One pound of boneless, skinless chicken breasts that have been grilled or cooked and shredded.
  • Olive oil, one tablespoon
  • A single tiny onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, chopped up
  • One tablespoon of minced canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (the amount can be adjusted according to personal liking).
  • 1 teaspoon of finely powdered cumin
  • A half of a teaspoon of chili powder
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste
  • One-fourth cup of fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Half a cup of sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon of lime water
  • A pinch of cayenne pepper (Optional)



·        Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (190 degrees Celsius).

·        Using a cutting board and a knife, remove a section of the avocado flesh while preserving the shell. This will ensure that the avocado remains intact. Cut the avocado flesh into cubes and set it aside.

·        Over medium heat, bring the olive oil to a simmer in a pan. After about five minutes, add the onion and continue to cook it until it has become more tender. Cook for a further minute after adding the garlic.

·        Stir, chipotle peppers, cumin, chili powder, salt, and pepper at this point. For one minute, cook till the aroma is released.

·        To the pan, add shredded chicken and diced avocado flesh, and heat for two to three minutes, or until the chicken is completely warmed through.

·        The chicken mixture should be stuffed into each half of the avocado.

·        Combine the sour cream, lime juice, and cayenne pepper (if you are using it) in a small bowl and mix them together. Drizzle this mixture over the avocados that have been packed.

·        Bake for ten to fifteen minutes, or until the mixture is completely heated and bubbling.

·        Garnish it with fresh cilantro and serve.

Additional Tips

  • As an alternative to chicken, you may use ground beef or turkey, both of which are low in carbohydrates.
  • Before baking, sprinkle some of your preferred cheese on top of the dish to create a cheesy topping.
  • In order to enhance the crispness and flavor of the dish, garnish it with chopped red onion or fresh pico de gallo.
  • You may serve this dish with a side of low-carb tortilla chips or wraps made of romaine lettuce for scooping.

What Is Crema Made Of?

Although Crema is frequently available in stores, it’s quite easy to create at home. Just mix sour cream, heavy cream, and lime juice (you could even use buttermilk instead), then let it sit for a few hours at room temperature until it becomes almost like liquid velvet.

Is Crema Sweet Or Bitter?

If you simply sip the crema, then… It’s pretty sour. It is therefore always vital to stir in the crema when drinking an espresso.
