I found this recipe a few days ago on Pinterest and decided I needed to try it. I've never been a big fan of avocado, but since it's supposed to be super healthy, I figure I should try and eat some more of it. I didn't have huge expectations for this meal...I kind of thought it would be a little bland. HA! I could NOT have more wrong. This was excellent!
If you click on the link for Source, you can get the recipe how it was originally written. I, however, kind of jacked it up...in a good way though. Well, good for lazy people. She actually made her chipotle mayo using regular mayo, chipotle pepper, lime juice, and adobo sauce. I must have just glanced at that when I was making my shopping list, because I bought chipotle mayo already made (Kraft has all kinds of flavored mayo's...chipotle happens to be one of them).
You can either make it her way, which isn't difficult at all, or my way, by purchasing pre-made chipotle mayo and adding some lime juice to it. If you want to give it a kick, go ahead and add the chipotle pepper to it as well. It gives the whole dish a great flavor. I also used pre-cooked bacon, but that's no surprise.
Oh, and my poached egg looks all chopped because I make mine in a pan. I can NOT for the life of me make a poached egg the regular way, so I bought a little egg poaching pan. It makes them come out in a perfect little circle (which is definitely more desirable than the gooey disgusting mass that is my regular poached egg, but not as photogenic, so I cut it). As for the ingredient measurements, I'm posting hers. I cut this down significantly though since I made it only for myself. It's simpe enough to adjust to your needs.
