Ingredients

  • 5 strips of bacon
  • 3 large avocados
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 2 chicken breasts* cooked or 2.5 cups of shredded chicken
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1 tsp sea salt + more to taste

Instructions

  1. Begin by cooking your bacon to your liking. Mine generally takes about 5 minutes per side on Medium-Medium high heat. Drain any excess fat with a paper towel, set aside.
  2. Mash up your avocado with a fork in a large bowl. Add lime juice, cumin, and sea salt.

  3. Mix in shredded chicken, bacon, pumpkin seeds, and onion.

  4. Salt to taste. Serve over greens, in a wrap, or on bread as a sandwich.

Recipe Notes

*To cook my chicken, I place on a baking sheet and bake at 350 for 25 minutes.
