I enjoyed this, but without the jalapenos (not a fan), but added some chopped celery instead. Still very good, using the avocado instead of mayonnaise (also not a mayo fan). I may try it with leftover chicken as well to make a chicken salad.

Love It!! Cut out the jalapenos, because my fiance doesn't like them, I did add a little bit of garlic and can I say "YUMMY"!

I made this with a couple slices of tomato and leaf lettuce and put it in 1/2 a pita - - YUMMY!!!
