Riding home today I had a hankering for avocados and chicken. And what better recipe to make than Chicken Fajitas topped with decadent avocado.

It is really easy, just a few ingredients that include flour tortillas, chicken, green bell pepper, white onion, fajita seasoning, and olive oil.

Here are some enticing photos and some steps for mashing the avocado.

1. Cut the avocado in half by using a knife to cut along the sides longways.

2. Remove the pit by scooping it out with the knife. Grab a fork and begin mashing the avocado's innings with the fork's prongs.

3. Mash everything but the purple skin (so mash everything green).

4. Gawk at the delicious-ness you are about to enjoy.

5. Top the mashed avocado on a hot-off-the-skillet chicken fajita.

6. Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy! Make sure not to leave any behind.
