The CLT Sandwich with Avocado and Chorizo

Take this CLT with Spicy Avocado Spread where C stands for delectable and fresh smoked chorizo.

This recipe is perfect for a picnic or enjoying on the go. It is a special treat, because anytime you are enjoying some fresh baguette with delicious fixing inside deserves a bit of a celebration.

This sandwich is simplicity at its finest, because when my day to day consists of quick eats like overnight oats for breakfast, a quick rice bowl mash for lunch and a veggie burger for dinner I can’t be spending time making something no matter how nice it is.
