Baked Mango & Black Bean Salsa Stuffed Avocados

Saturday, August 24, 2013

From our skinny table to yours...

Have we mentioned how much we love avocados?  Today we are taking our obsession to a whole new level!  We are stuffing our avocados with mango and black bean salsa, topping them with Mexican cheese and then baking them to a warm perfection!  Can you say yum :)

We start out by making our Mango & Black Bean Salsa which is so good you could eat it by the spoonful!  Simply toss together mango, black beans, grape tomatoes, onion, garlic, lots of fresh cilantro and the juice from one lime!  Simple and delicious!

Simply stuff your avocado, top with Mexican cheese and then pop them in the oven to warm the avocado and melt the cheese!  Enjoy this little taste of heaven for lunch, or alongside a lean protein source for dinner!  How good would these be served up with our Cilantro & Lime Shrimp Skewers, or our Grilled Chicken Kebabs with Jalapeno Cilantro Pesto

Happy weekend!  Hope you enjoy :)
P.S. don't be afraid of the fat content as avocados are loaded with healthy fats you're body needs!
