    Delicious Grilled Avocados with Mango Salsa Chicken will have you feeling like you are on a tropical vacation without leaving your backyard. Healthy and easy to make!

    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.
