Today I bring you this classic and delicious Chilean starter dish, the popular Cardinal Stuffed Avocado. It is a very simple dish to prepare, and for some people it’s quite filling. You can lower the portion to 1/4 of a unit of avocado if desired, so that afterwards you can enjoy the main course with no problems, but for those who are OK with it, half of an avocado is perfect.
