Stuffed Avocados



Yesterday, I hit the stores to see what good day-after Christmas deals I could find. I found some pretty cool things. I had no idea what good deals you could find on Christmas stuff! I had to hold myself back, otherwise I would have come home with a whole set of Christmas decorations for the apartment. But I did find cute Christmas containers for cookies! Let's cross our fingers to hope that next year I get to or the hubby gets to take part in a cookie exchange :) Do not worry-- if there is not one-- Ill create one :) I mean, who does not want to take part in a cookie exchange?!

On a related note. Do you know what else I would like to take part in? I must be slowly turning into a housewife but a Pinterest Party! Though only for food. It is like a cookie exchange but in general people make something they saw on Pinterest (it does not have to be food) and make enough for each person at the party. Then at the Pinterest party, each person gets one of what everyone made. I think for me, I would prefer food...because well I love food but I would like to see recipes that may not have caught my eye but taste delicious. Sadly, I live in College Station and my two good friends are boys. And though we do potluck dinners-- I am not sure they and the hubby would be fan of Pinterest parties :) 

Well, my morning appointment was cancelled. So I came home and wanted to whip up a really fast lunch. Like really fast! This is what I came up and it tasted delicious! Though you must be a fan of avocados, otherwise you will not enjoy this. But man, is this recipe easy to make and pretty healthy :)








STUFFED AVOCADOS
A For the Love of Dessert Original Recipe

INGREDIENTS

Preheat Oven to 425F Degrees

(Ingredients are for two servings-- one avocado)- multiply by servings needed

1 ripe avocado 
1/2-1 tomato, diced (or half a can of diced tomatoes, drained)
3/4 c. corn (drained or if frozen--warmed)
1/3 c. cream of cheese* 
1/3 c. bread crumbs 
1/4 c. shredded cheese (sprinkling)
1 green onion, diced
Cilantro, salt, pepper, lemon juice for garnish

* You may substitute with another cooking cream 

DIRECTIONS

Cut the avocado in half and remove pit. Set on baking sheet lined with Silpat or a parchment paper coated with cooking spray. In a medium bowl, combine tomato, corn, cream of cheese, and bread crumbs. Scoop out about 3-4 tbsp. of the mixture and fill the center of the avocado (where the pit used to be). Shape into a dome and flatten with the palm of your hand. Sprinkle with shredded cheese. Then bake for 5-8 minutes. Remove and garnish with a pinch of cilantro, salt, pepper and lemon juice. Then top with green onions and serve.

Serve avocados with any additional stuffing. Extra stuffing is always yummy! Especially for the parts of the avocado not topped with stuffing! 

Enjoy,
Chika

    1. Hello! Happy to clarify! It is Campbell's cooking cream like cream of mushroom, etc. the one I used was cheddar cheese. Hope that helps!
