10-minute Spicy Avocado Boats

Time and inconvenience can no longer be used as excuses to get your butt in the kitchen! This enjoyable recipe requires less than 6 ingredients! And with very little prep work, you can create a full-flavored Low Carb meal! I will also mention that this is great way to minimize dirty dishes because you are using your avocados as the bowls!

This recipe can be prepped as a single serving on a Rest Day for someone with an appetite and not a lot of time. You can also separate it into 2 meals (on the same day) OR if you’re willing to share, your significant other can enjoy some too! And before you think to yourself… “Man, this dish looks like it has just too much fat.” Please remember that the fats included in this recipe are GOOD FOR YOU! Avocados are abundant in vitamins, they do not contain the BAD cholesterol and they have a lot of fiber (only 2 grams net Carbs)!
