Tasty Tuesday: Broiled Avocado with Melted Cheese & Hot Sauce.

These are on the menu for dinner tonight (along with grilled balsamic bruschetta chicken) and I cannot wait!! Avocados are already one of my favorite foods, but then you add melted cheese + hot sauce? WHAT!?!

Broiled Avocado with Melted Cheese & Hot Sauce
Recipe and photo found here.

1 avocado
1 tablespoon chipotle sauce (Tabasco)
1 tablespoon lime juice
¼ cup parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper

Slice the avocado in half and remove the stone. Prick all over with a fork, or cut criss-cross patterns with a knife. This allows the sauce to penetrate the flesh.

Pour the sauce over each half, then top with lime juice and salt and pepper.

In the cavity where the stone has been, put ¼ of the cheese on each avocado half. Place under the hot broiler for 2 minutes. 

 Top with remaining cheese and broil for another 2 minutes until completely melted and avocado warmed through.

Eat hot with a wedge of lime and chipotle sauce on the side!
