These will be such a hit at your Super Bowl party. Warm guacamole in it's own little bowl? Perfect for serving up to watch the big game!
I am FOR ONCE excited about the game. Two western teams? You mean I actually have someone to cheer for? Let the festivities begin!
Twice Baked Avocados
2 ripe (but firm) avocados, halved and seeded
Olive oil spray
1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
1/3 cup chopped fresh tomatoes
3 Tbsp fresh chopped cilantro
1/3 cup finely shredded cheddar cheese
2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
1 tsp honey
1/2 tsp sea salt
Dash ground black pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray avocado halves lightly with olive oil. Place on a baking sheet, cut side up, and bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly, so that they can be handled.
Gently remove flesh from avocados with a fork or spoon, preserving the skin as a "bowl". Place flesh into a bowl and mash well with a fork. Add remaining ingredients and mix well.
Transfer mixture back into avocado skins and place back onto the baking sheet. Top each with a sprinkle of cheese and return to oven. Bake for 5-8 additional minutes.
Remove from oven and serve immediately with tortilla chips for dipping.
