After setting out boneless skinless chicken this morning, I had no idea what to make for dinner. I was walking around the store like a lost person, with only a bottle of wine in my cart. I mindlessly grabbed an avocado and then spotted the 75% off basket at Sweetbay - McCormick's Grill Mates Mexican Fiesta was one of the products in there. I usually make my own marinades but at $0.30, I couldn't walk away. Now I had a Mexico chicken flavor profile but I wanted nothing to do with Tacos, Taco Salad or Fajitas. I am over it. I saw Boboli's 100% Whole Wheat Thin Crust (thank you at home pizza gods - this is the 1st time I have found this since moving to Tampa). I knew immediately what I would create! I marinaded my chicken in the Mexican Fiesta, baked it for 20 minutes at 400 degrees and chopped it up.
Cuisinart Smart Stick. I then added A LOT of fresh garlic slices, spread it on the pizza and step by step, added the chicken, 1/2 a can of black beans (drained and rinsed) and some fat free cheese. I threw it in the oven for 9 minutes at 425.
Well what do I do with that other half of the avocado? Gabe wanted to eat it like an apple. I had better ideas. Avocado chocolate chip popsicles!! Do not be put off by avocado's as a dessert. They are such a creamy base and are amazing when you add a natural sweeter to them. We love them and both of us were once very picky eaters.
I got a Zoku pop maker last summer and honestly, do not use it enough as I should. I had some coconut milk, blended it with the remaining avocado, put honey in to taste and a lot of chocolate chips. Voila! Enough to make 3 pops.
1/2 avocado - remove the pit, get the flesh out and put into a blender. Add 1/8 a cup or more coconut milk - you want it to be a medium consistency. Pour honey in to taste, depending on how sweet you want it to be. Blend until smooth. Add the chocolate chips and pour into your Popsicle maker. If you are using your Zoku, it will take 8 minutes to freeze. If it is another brand, I cannot help you with the time.
