Stuffed Avocados

I seriously think I could live off avocados.  I probably eat them at least 4-5 times a week, and always love it when I find new avocado recipes.  I had originally found the idea for this from a fellow food blogger (Thanks Kitchen Trial and Error!), but changed it to suit my needs.   

I served the stuffed avocados as a side dish, using just 1 avocado for 2 people.  These would also be great to serve if you have people over for dinner.  They take about 2 minutes to make, but look and taste great!

avocados (at least 1 per 2 people people)
1 can black beans
feta crumblers
fresh mint leaves (chopped)


1.  Cut the avocados in half the long way.

2.  Use a knife to remove the pit.

3.  Using a small spoon, scoop just a little bit of the avocado out to make the indent bigger.  This way there is more room to fit the filling!

4.  Warm the beans in a microwave safe dish for about 45 seconds.  Then place 2-3 tablespoons of the beans in the avocado "indent."

5.  Top with some salsa.  I have absolutely no spice tolerance so I opted for Newman's Own Mild Tequila Lime.  

6.  Sprinkle with feta crumblers and chopped mint leaves!

  1. I have always wanted to try stuffed avocados! These look delicious! Wanted to let you know I left you an award on my blog!! I hope you have had a wonderful weekend!

  2. I love avocados too! These stuffed babies look delicious!

  3. I am making these for lunch today, I just happen to have all of the ingredients (except the mint). Yum thanks for the suggestion!

    PS: I could live off Avocados too I eat them once a day. I wish they sold them in halves though wouldn't that be neat?

  4. This is what I am talking about! LOVE all the ingredients. Job well done, thank you.

  5. "The Sissy" - They definitely NEED to sell avocados in halves. That would be great.

  6. Also...was thinking after eating these again for dinner tonight...we should probably wash the outside before eating the inside, who KNOWS where they have been....even though you aren't eating the outside they still touch the food that's inside. Just another random thought :)

  7. I think I could live on avocados too! These sound great & with the addition of black beans, they make the perfect dinner!
