Stuffed avocado, a Mexican traditional.

Tuna-stuffed avocado is an easy, nutritious and delicious dish commonly made in many Mexican homes. We love avocados any time of the year, for lunch, dinner, or even as a fancy snack!

They can be stuffed with any other seafood, but i think they pair particularly well with tuna. I just discovered that mixing tuna with vegan mayo gives the right amount of creamy and of course, i added my spicy touch with some chipotles.

If you don't find them you can always chop some serrano chile and add it to the mix.

 You can judge for yourself in just 20 minutes!
