Jalapeño Ranch Shredded Chicken Avocado Boats

I know I’m not the only one who looks forward to Taco Tuesday…  of course I love to enjoy a taco any day of the week but Tuesdays just seem so fitting…. 

My past few taco adventures have been ground beef or turkey so I decided to tackle chicken this time around. 

One of my favorite chicken recipes is cool ranch shredded chicken. SO GOOD! So I decided to blend that into my recipe. 

For my boats I went for avocados but I think this blend would pair well with a sweet potato boat, zucchini boats, or a lettuce wrap! 

I would have to say avocado boats are my absolute favorite… probably because I LOVE avocados! 

The flavors here pair so well, between the cool ranch shredded chicken mixed with the jalapeños/onion/pepper mixture and the jalapeños and ranch topping.. so tasty ! 

Here is what you need:


  • 2 jalapeños diced
  • 1 yellow onion diced
  • 3-4 chicken breasts
  • half a green pepper
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tbsp Homemade Dry Ranch Mix
  • salt & pepper
  • compliant ranch
  • scallions


  1. First Cook your chicken. I used the Instant Pot. But you can stove top as well. I added 1 cup of chicken broth, my homemade dry ranch seasoning, & salt and pepper to the Instant Pot. *Homemade Dry Ranch Mix*- parsley, garlic powder, salt, pepper, onion powder, and dill.
  2. Turn Instant Pot to pressure cook for 10 minutes. It will take about 10 minutes to heat up.
  3. While chicken is cooking dice your onion, jalapeños, and green pepper. Saute in a pan over oil at medium heat until they soften. Add 2 cloves minced garlic and cook two more minutes.
  4. Once your chicken is finished let pressure release. Drain most of the liquid, leaving a little. Shred your chicken. Mix in the onion, pepper, jalapeño mix and stir.
  5. Cut open your avocados and scoop out some of the inside leaving a small well for your chicken. Add your chicken into your avocados and top with compliant ranch and scallions.
  6. Enjoy!
