Diva Tasting: Stuffed Avocado…

Stuffed Avocado

6 Avocados, Halved And Pitted

3 Cooked Chicken Breasts, Diced

4 Ounces Cream Cheese, Softened

½ Cup Mayonnaise

1 Lemon Juiced

½ Cup Chopped Tomatoes

1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt

½ Teaspoon Ground Black Pepper

1 Pinch Cayenne Pepper

1 Cup Shredded Parmesan Cheese

Directions

Step 1 Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

Step 2 Scoop out some of the flesh in the center of each avocado; place into mixing bowl. Add chicken, cream cheese, mayonnaise, tomatoes, juice of 1 lemon, salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper; mix well to combine. Scoop spoonfuls of chicken mixture into the wells of each avocado; top each with generous amount of Parmesan cheese. Place avocado halves, face-up, in muffin cups to stabilize.

Step 3 Bake avocados in preheated oven until cheese is melted, 8 to 10 minutes.

Notes: Substitute 6 ounces crab meat (drained well if using canned meat) for the chicken; along with 1 tablespoon of scallions. Serve with garlic crostini or pita chips and beverage. Serves 6

NOTE: I prefer broiled chicken breasts for more flavor. For vegetarian try 1 package of sauteed cremini mushrooms chopped instead of chicken.
