Now for the homemade element. No worries, nothing over the top for this easy recipe.

To make our chicken avocado bowls a little more amazing, we added traditional Southwestern ingredients. We quickly fried black beans, sweet corn, bell pepper with chili powder and other seasonings. Just stir and fry until the beans are heated through, the corn is browned slightly, and the sweet bell peppers are crisp-tender.

This is a warm + colorful addition to your chicken avocado bowls, so don’t skip this part.





Black bean, corn, and fresh bell peppers are great additions to our chicken avocado bowls.


Fresh topping time! Avocados are a must for Southwestern Chicken Avocado Bowls. The rich creaminess of fresh avocado slices brings this whole dish together.

This is where you can go mild or wild. For our recipe we used:

  • Chopped tomatoes
  • Sliced green onions
  • Fresh cilantro

Here are more ideas to make Southwestern Chicken Avocado Bowls your own creation:

  • Sliced jalapenos
  • Salsa verde (one of my personal favorites, low cal = major flavor)
  • Fresh greens  (especially if you are going low carb for the New Year)
