The sun is out, puffy clouds gently dance across the sky and I am ready for a warm weather vacation! Only problem is, my vacation isn’t planned for another couple of months.  Instead I create our own little summer staycation paradise at home.  Frozen drinks, miniature umbrellas and Grilled Avocados with Peruvian Chicken and Mango Salsa using Mezzetta Peppers bring the heat and make me think of the tropical paradise I am yearning for.

What also comes with my vacation is a lot of relaxation, which is why my Grilled Avocados with Peruvian Chicken and Mango Salsa takes less than 30 minutes to put together and can be done ahead of time with only 3 minutes (yes, 3 minutes!!!) on the grill. It is also a light meal that won’t slow me down on the lawn games for the rest of the evening.  You should see my bocce ball skills.

I love using Mezzetta brand peppers to achieve the flavor I am going for. Roasted Red Bell Peppers give my grilled avocados a cool sweetness, but the additional of Mezzetta Deli-Sliced Jalapeño Peppers or Hot Wax Banana Peppers will bring the heat, perfect for serving with an ice cold beer.  Mezzetta harvests their peppers at the height of ripeness and preserves them a proprietary brine keeping them crunchy and flavorful all the way to your kitchen.

Recipe Notes

I use a plain rotisserie chicken from the grocery store for my shredded chicken. Since you only need a small amount. Consider making Buffalo Chicken Dip with the remainder.

I love Peruvian food & this looks great. I always have a jar of those red peppers in my cupboard; they work in so many dishes from Italian to Mexican to Peruvian. Thanks for this recipe.

Incredible creation you have put together here with one of our favorite foods along with Mezzetta peppers, a brand we enjoy frequently. We will be firing up the grill this weekend and this recipe will be a part of it!

This is a great recipe. LOVE Mezzetta products. I use them in sandwiches and pasta mostly. It gives the dish a wonderful flavor and aroma.
