Whether it’s on a bed of lettuce, crispy toast or straight out of a bowl, I’ve always loved chicken salad.

Yesterday we decided to pick up some bacon from our local grocery…we got home, I opened the package and wow!

I’m not sure I can go back to regular store packaged bacon- even before it was cooked it smelled so good.

We also picked up a few avocados with no real plans for them, and I knew I needed to come up with something incorporating both ingredients.

The deliciously fresh bacon gave me the idea to make this avocado chicken salad with peppery bacon and a crispy low carb tortilla.

One of the great things about avocado chicken salad is that you can make a batch of it an keep it in the fridge all week.

It’s a great go-to for meals, or even a quick snack with some veggie sticks.

I wanted to keep the celery in the recipe for the fresh crunch it offers, and if you don’t like celery, cucumbers would be a good swap.

Don’t skip the fresh cilantro, though, because it really brightens up the avocado chicken salad and gives a good contrast to the crunch of the low carb tortilla.

Whether you’re in need of a nutritious snack or a filling meal, this avocado chicken salad is creamy, fresh and super quick.

(As an added bonus, you can sneak more veggies into the meal without the kids knowing- hooray!)

I used lemon juice instead of the lime juice and doubled the measurement for chili powder and used cayenne pepper in place of chili powder. Added to taste tajin seasoning in the mayo. And this recipe is awesome. Just what the taste buds needed in the heat of the summer. Thank you so much for sharing.

Can someone help me out with the nutrition info. I plugged in the recipe to my fitness pal and the calories and carbs came to what I think is extremely high. It says for one serving but I can't imagine that it is correct. Can someone help me out with macros for an individual serving

Have you subtracted the fiber from the total carbs? Avocados have a larger amount of carbs but also have a lot of fiber.

This was an awesome recipe. I skipped the cucumber and used the celery. I also skipped the extra carbs. I hollowed out a cucumber and stuffed it with the salad. It was great for lunch or a snack. Now I have something to do with all those summer cucumbers in the gardenm

This chicken salad is incredibly good! Love the avocado! I’m getting used to using avocados in more and more of my meal prep. Thanks for a great recipe! I’ll be saving this one! P.S. I didn’t have celery so had to use water chestnuts. They added a nice crunch.
