Cut open each arepa and carefully fill each with 1/4 cup of Avo-Verde Chicken Salad mixture and 1 Tbsp of chopped cilantro.
Ave Arepas Directions:
In a medium bowl, gently knead avocado, cornmeal, water and salt together until a loose dough forms.
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let the dough rest at least 10 minutes.
Portion into 4-oz dough balls. Keep covered until ready to cook.
To cook, heat a dry skillet over medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes. Flatten the dough balls into 4" to 4 1/2" rounds with the palms of your hands and gently place them onto the dry skillet.
Cook each arepa about 5 to 6 minutes on each side until they're both golden brown and crispy.
Use these immediately.
Avo-Verde Chicken Salad Directions:
Fold chicken thighs, mashed avocados, red onion, celery, queso fresco and salt together in a small bowl until all of the ingredients are evenly combined.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
