|Avocado layered with chili powder, lime and sharp cheddar then broiled until bubbly.|
I love avocado but never got very creative with it. Beyond adding chunks to salads, layering slices in sandwiches and mashing it with lime in guacamole I hadn’t ever done anything else with it. But then my husband came across this idea in an Eating Well magazine.
Avocado recipe with chili powder, lime and sharp cheddar
- Take one ripe avocado, slice it in half lengthwise and remove the pit.
- Score each half in a crisscross fashion, slicing right down to the peel.
- Squeeze over lime juice (about 1 tsp per half), sprinkle with chili powder (just a few pinches for each half or to taste) and layer on grated sharp cheddar or your favourite sharp cheese. We use about 2 Tbsp per half. Feel free to use more, or less, depending on your preference.
- Then fire the dressed halves under the broiler until the cheese is bubbling and starting to brown.
- enjoy while hot.
