Author Notes: In my eyes anything with avocados is a WIN. Don't know what to do about leftovers, stuff it in an avocado, you can't go wrong :) This is an extremely versatile recipe, any leftovers would go GREAT!! Leftover chili? Can of tuna sitting in your pantry? Leftover salad or slaw? Leftover chicken --> chicken salad stuffed avocados. Add some Sriracha to give it a "kick" and you're in for a protein-packed treat! Made with greek yogurt, no mayo, no oil, but lots of great seasoning. The chicken salad included leftover organic roasted chicken I had done the Sunday night before. Feel free to adjust the ingredients, add more veggies, add more spices, add salsa & black beans for a tex-mex version! Endless possibilities! The PICTURE reflects my simple chicken salad made with a greek yogurt dressing, celery, roasted shallots and raisins.Stacy
