Baked Stuffed Avocados

I saw a picture of this online a while back but couldn't find a good recipe for it so I decided to make one of my own! Josh and I both enjoyed it thoroughly and it was fairly easy to make as well!
  • 1 whole avocado, halved & pitted
  • 1/6 cup onion, diced
  • 1/6 cup red bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 cup cooked brown rice
  • 1/4 cup sharp white cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/8 cup tomato, finely diced

  1. Preheat oven to 350*
  2. Remove avocado flesh fresh the skin leaving about 1/8" of flesh behind. Do this using a spoon, just don't scoop it all out.
  3. Heat oil in pan over medium-high heat. Saute bell pepper, onion & garlic for about 5 minutes, until onion is translucent.
  4. Mash together avocado flesh, cheese, rice, and saute'd vegetables and half of the cheese. Fill hollowed avocados with this mixture. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes, until center is warm and cheese is melted.
  6. Top with diced tomato.

 This is an insanely healthy, incredibly delicious lunch or brunch that can be prepared in a cinch!
