  3. BBQ Chicken Avocado Boats

    Don’t have more than 10 minutes to prepare dinner tonight? I’ve got you covered with this super quick, high protein, crowd-pleasing recipe! These BBQ Chicken Avocado Boats are a delicious combination of roasted chicken and crunchy bell peppers covered in BBQ sauce and served on top of creamy avocado.

    To make this recipe as quick as possible, purchase pre-roasted chicken from the store, or use leftover cooked chicken from yesterday’s meal. Then all you need to do is chop the bell pepper, mix everything together, scoop on top of avocado and serve!

  4. Enchilada Soup with Avocado

    I really enjoyed this soup.  It’s quite tasty.  The avocado gave it that “extra something”.  I did half the recipe and still had leftovers to freeze.   It is a little more complicated though, than some of the other Eating For Life recipes.    It would be a great recipe to make during our cooler weather.  Hope you enjoy it!

    Serves: 8

    Prep Time: 55 minutes


    • 1 tbsp olive oil
    • 6 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 tbsp cilantro, chopped
    • 8 corn tortillas, divided
    • 8 portions chicken breast (about 2 lbs)
    • 1 can (15 oz) pureed tomatoes
    • 2 onions, finely chopped
    • 6 cups fat-free, reduced-sodium chicken broth
    • 2 cups of water
    • 1 tbsp ground cumin
    • 2 tsp chili powder
    • 2 bay leaves
    • Ground red pepper, to taste
    • 3/4 cup reduced-fat cheddar cheese, shredded
    • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted and diced


    1. Warm olive oil in a large pot over medium-low heat. Add garlic and cilantro; saute for 3 minutes. Chop 4 of the tortillas into approximately 1-inch squares and add to pot; saute until softened, about 5 minutes.
    2. While tortillas are cooking, slice chicken into bite-size pieces. Add chicken, pureed tomatoes, onions, chicken broth, water, tomato paste, cumin, chili powder and bay leaves; bring to a boil over high heat.
    3. Reduce heat to low, add ground red pepper and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    4. While the soup is simmering, preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Using scissors, cut the remaining tortillas into approximately 1/4″ wide strips, and place on baking sheet in a single layer. Bake until lightly browned, about 7 minutes. (They will crisp as they cool.)
    5. After the soup has simmered for 30 minutes, remove the bay leaves. Then ladle a portion (about 1 1/2 cups) of soup into a bowl and top with the shredded cheese, diced avocado and tortilla strips.
