Can You Say Adobe?

Cafe Adobe

To anyone who has seen Jan Hooks's hilarious turn as an Alamo tour guide in Pee-wee's Big Adventure, it may be difficult to keep a straight face about the Avocado Adobe ($11.99) at Cafe Adobe [2111 Westheimer, (713)528-1468, and other locations]. But this chicken dish is as serious as a heart attack and extremely habit-forming, which makes moderation even more important. It starts with half a peeled and pitted avocado that's stuffed with pulled chicken breast. The hulking mass is then lovingly wrapped in Monterey Jack cheese, dipped in a spicy flour batter and deep-fried. The result arrives swimming in a light ranchero sauce, so that you have to dive through oozy blobs of cheese to find your inner avocado.
