These insanely delicious deep-fried avocado poppers are perfectly crispy on the outside, insanely creamy on the inside, and take less than 20 minutes to make!!
Fill a large skillet with the oil (you want it to cover more than half the height of the avocados once they are placed in the pan) and heat to 350°F (177°C).
Next, prepare your flax in a small bowl and leave to thicken for 5-10 minutes.
Pour the panko into a small bowl, and the flour into a separate bowl. Mix in the optional chipotle powder into the bowl of flour.
Then dip them in the flax egg. Be sure to fully saturate the avocado so the panko will stick. This process can get messy, so I reserve one hand for dipping and one for breading. This keeps your bowls and hands free of globs.
Once the oil is hot, fry one tester popper. It should take 2 minutes per side to cook. If the avocado browns in less than 30 seconds, your oil is too hot. If it takes more than 3 minutes to brown on one side, increase the heat.
