Keto Southwest Chicken Avocado Salad

51 ratings

I love this Southwest Chicken Avocado Salad because it requires no cooking whatsoever as the recipe uses a rotisserie chicken! This is great for the summer months when it’s hot and you don’t want to turn the oven on, let alone, cook. I have spiced up the salad with curry and chipotle powder which gives it smokiness and heat! Serve with lettuce or as is.

    Served on romaine lettuce. Very good recipe coming from someone who’s not a big fan of cucumber lol! I substituted celery with fennel as that’s all I had in fridge

          I’m not a big chicken fan, but I think this would be great with shredded beef ir diced pork chops

            Super yum! A new regular fast chicken dish for me. I added one diced bird’s eye chili for some heat.

                This was decent but definitely had a kick to it. Tastes better cold (tastes after I cooked I put together). It does get spicier as it sits.

                    Delicious dish! I served it on a bed of salad greens with bacon bits, sliced hard boiled egg and chopped nuts. I added Italian seasoning to the greens. Instead of using celery in the recipe, I used chopped red cabbage. My husband and I love it!

                              I did enjoy this. I listened to the others and used cumin instead of curry. I do like curry But to me thats not Southwest I didnt have chipotle chili powder but i did have chipotle tabasco sauce and used that. Was filling to me. I’d make it again. In fact according to my meal plan its lunch tomorrow...Good thing i liked it 🤣

                                This is so good !!! I used Marsala and Cumin along with a tablespoon of Chia seeds and put it on a bed of spinach. 👍🏻👍🏻

                                  It came out great. I used cumin instead of curry and I diced up a Serrano pepper and add it. I would definitely make this for guests
