The ingredients must have come to me in my sleep. The more I use my slow cooker, the more I love it.

This salmon is so delicious on it's own. I decided to cedar plank the salmon on the grill, and drizzle it with some cayenne lime butter.

After having a bite of the Chipotle Chicken Tacos my coworker brought for lunch a couple of weeks ago, this was my dinner two days later.

If you know me you know I am a sucker for avocado and chipotle. I used a rotisserie chicken so it's super easy to make.

Egg, Prosciutto & Tomato Muffins
Sriracha Meatballs

I'm a big fan of savory muffins. These are pretty much mini omelettes in a cup. They are perfect for weekend brunch, and even better to make ahead for the week and then pop them in the microwave.

BBQ Chicken Quinoa Stuffed Avocado

BBQ Chicken Quinoa Stuffed Avocado


I'm alive! Swimming in boxes, busy unpacking and enjoying my favorite time of year, March Madness. I can't get enough college basketball this time of year. Big Kansas fan here, Rock Chalk Jayhawk!

Once I get unpacked and get my kitchen in order, which requires a trip to The Container Store, I'll be back in action and posting more regularly. I'm still figuring out how to do my food shopping, so many options with Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, Safeway, Amazon Fresh and of course the farmer's markets. 

Anyway, onto this dish that was inspired by Gaby's BBQ Chicken Quinoa Salad. I've had the urge to stuff an avocado for awhile now and once I saw her BBQ Chicken Quinoa it was fate, that is what my avocado would be stuffed with. Despite not looking that pretty, it was delicious! This is a super easy dish to throw together and feel free to play around with the ingredients, use up whatever ingredients you have on hand and adjust to your taste. That's what I did!

2-3 avocados
2 cups cooked quinoa
2 cups shredded chicken (I used a rotisserie chicken)
1 cup corn
1 can pinto beans, drained & rinsed
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
3/4 cup barbecue sauce
3 scallions, chopped

In a large bow combine quinoa, chicken, corn, pinto beans, cheese, barbecue sauce and scallions and stir together. Season with salt and pepper.

Slice avocados in half, lengthwise, and remove pit. Scoop out some of the avocado, leaving about 1/2 an inch inside the shell. Add scooped out avocado to quinoa and chicken mixture and mix together.
