Hasselback Tex-Mex Avocados
“Transform an avocado into a showstopping dish that tastes even better than it looks. Just cut slits in an avocado half using the hasselback technique, then add tomato, cheese and a flavorful dressing for a healthy Mexican-inspired side.”
2 firm ripe avocados, halved, pitted and peeled
1 medium plum tomato, halved lengthwise, seeded and thinly sliced
1 tablespoon avocado oil or olive oil
1 tablespoon lime juice
½ teaspoon chili powder
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground pepper
2 tablespoons crumbled queso blanco
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1Place avocado halves cut-side down on a cutting board. Make crosswise cuts every ¼ inch along each half, slicing almost to the bottom but not all the way through. Carefully transfer the avocados to a serving platter. Fill each cut with a slice of tomato, skin-side up.
2Combine oil, lime juice, chili powder, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Drizzle over the avocados. Top with cheese and cilantro.
