How to Make It:
You want to make everything according to the package. Here are step by step instructions on how I made mine.
Step 1: Brown the Meat! I also added a teaspoon of red onion to the meat to enhance the flavor.
Step 2. While Your meat is cooking you’ll want to start dicing your veggies.
To help you with your avocado here is a quick video tutorial I made to guide you.
Step 3. Add your milk, water, rice, and sauce packet, reduce heat and simmer until done.
When the rice is tender and cooked through, add the the topping pouch with 1/3 cup milk. It will make the mixture extra cheesy and yummy! You can leave it out if you choose to – I didn’t.
Once everything is cooked you’ll want to start assembling your salad. In the avocado shells, I added a little bit of lettuce, then the mixture, topped it with corn chips, tomato, onion, cilantro, avocado slices, and shredded cheese!
I placed them on a bed of shredded lettuce added some more avocados and a little lime juice and olive oil. Everyone loved it and were actually excited to try something new. Even my husband who isn’t a fan of the green super food had a field day on the salad!
It’s quite filling and you can use it as a side or a full meal. Serve it as an appetizer at your next cookout or whenever you’re celebrating Hamburger!
