Creamy Avocado Chicken Salad

My husband wanted some chicken salad so we started looking for some recipes. Then it came to me. I had a nice looking chicken salad on one of my pinterest boards. I looked it up and to my surprise, I had everything on hand. Well, except for black beans. However, the hubs doesn't like black beans really so we just decided to omit them. I would have loved the black beans...yum! This dish was delicious and one we will be making again. The hubs eats his with bread, but I really enjoyed this inside half an avocado. It's so pretty too! Let me know what you think of it. :)

1 cup chicken breast, cooked and shredded
¼ cup corn
¼ cup black beans, rinsed and drained
¼ cup green onions, chopped
¼ cup tomatoes, diced
¼ cup cilantro, chopped
¼ cup corn chips, crushed (to make it healthier, we subbed sliced almonds)
2 tablespoons white vinegar
4 tablespoons mayonnaise
Salt to taste
2-4 avocados, sliced in half with pits discarded


In a medium bowl, toss the chicken breast, corn, black beans, green onions, tomatoes, cilantro, and corn chips together. Add the vinegar and mayonnaise to mixture and toss to coat. Salt to taste. Spoon salad into halved avocados. Serve immediately with a spoon and fork.
We doubled  this recipe to have some leftovers.
