Southwestern Chicken Salad in Avocado Bowls

Recipe courtesy George Stella’s “Real Food Real Easy” Cookbook

Prep Time 15 mins / Serves 4

Shopping List
2 cups cooked chicken, shredded
2⁄3 cup sour cream
3 tablespoons chunky salsa
1 tablespoon fresh chopped cilantro
1 teaspoon lime juice
2 avocados

1. Fold chicken, sour cream, salsa, cilantro, and lime juice together in a large bowl, shredding chicken with a fork until your desired consistency is reached.

2. Cover and refrigerate chicken salad for 30 minutes for the ingredients and flavors to mingle, or skip to the next step to serve immediately.

3. When you are ready to serve, slice the avocados in half lengthwise and remove the pit. Use each half as a serving bowl for 1 person, stuffing chicken salad into the empty pit cavity and then mounding heaping spoonfuls over top of the entire surface of the avocado half. Serve garnished with fresh cilantro.

George’s Tips | When shopping, look for a chunky salsa without any added sugar or corn syrup in the ingredients list. I’ve found that Pace’s Chunky Salsa does not add sugar and they should be readily available in any grocery store.

Variation | Give the salad more texture by adding 2 tablespoons of diced green bell pepper or a few teaspoons of diced jalapeño pepper, if you like spice. You can also serve topped with shredded Cheddar jack cheese and chopped bacon for even more great flavors!

How to Sanitize/Disinfect Your Makeup.

For Vanity's Sake

HOUSEIf I asked you, “When was the last time you cleaned your makeup?” Most of you would probably cringe when you realize that either you haven’t really cleaned your makeup or it has been forever since you did!

Everyone knows already that cleaning your makeup brushes is essential to prevent all that gunk and germs from collecting and transferring to our faces, but if your makeup is swimming in pools of germs, your clean brushes aren’t going to do you any good to prevent possible infections.

MAKE SURE TO WASH YOUR HANDS BEFORE GETTING STARTED! As in wash it with soap and water in the duration of 2 Happy Birthday Songs. 🙂

Let’s get started:

  • An isopropyl alcohol is great for killing bacteria that could be living in your precious makeup. A concentration of 70% or higher is recommended but try to avoid 99% because it might evaporate too fast…

A butterfly flaps its wings on Twitter, and a vaccine map goes viral

Skeptical Software Tools

CFR vaccine preventable diseases mapIf you follow the problem of vaccine denialism (like most skeptics do) and are on social media, you probably saw a cool interactive global map of disease outbreaks this week. It was created by the Council on Foreign Relations – there’s a picture of it here and a link below the fold.  

Just in the last week it was posted by many major websites including, Mother Jones, L.A. Times, The Verge, Wired, The Atlantic Wire and even Forbes. And of course all those posts – and the direct link to the map – were being wildly passed around on social media.

Whenever I see something like this going viral, I dig a little bit before I retweet or repost it.  Sometimes there’s a better version of the post to link, or the one you saw didn’t attribute it to the original author correctly. I like to make sure…
