Mexican Style Stuffed Avocado

I love avocados and I love them, even more, when they are stuffed with yummy salsa and black beans and covered with melted cheese! It’s Cinco de Mayo time around here so I’m sharing some of my favorite Mexican foods! I still can’t get enough avocados and that might be because I have like 10,000 of them growing on my trees. It might also be because I just love them! They taste like butter to me. The girls like to sprinkle some sea salt and pepper on them and eat them with a spoon straight out of their natural “shell” and I don’t blame them!

I feel like there should be some sort of recipe to make this, but like all of my recipes, there isn’t really. There are general ideas of mine that can lead you, but you can turn this into anything you want. Love peppers? Add them! Hate tomatoes? Ditch them!

Here is what I did… I took a few avocados and cut them in half. Carefully remove the seed. You don’t have to be careful if you don’t want to… but I don’t want you to get hurt so I’m going to say to be careful, okay?

Heat up some black beans. I used canned ones. Open your favorite jar of salsa. Tear open a bag of shredded cheese. <— This is when I get a little picky. You can use any cheese you like but I always use cheese that’s cows are not treated by antibiotics or hormones. But you know I’m easy, you can use whatever cheese you want.

Now scoop some beans into the little avocado hole. Top it with salsa and then sprinkle with cheese.

Place on a baking sheet and broil till the cheese is all melted and golden brown.
