Ingredients

  • 1 in avocado cored and sliced in half
  • 3 Tbsp bacon cooked and crumbled
  • 3 Tbsp salsa
  • 1 Tbsp red onion diced
  • 1/2 cup cheese I used Sharp Vermont White Cheddar but any will do
  • 1/2 cup cucumber diced
  • 1/2 cup tomato diced
  • 4 tsp ranch dressing

Instructions

  • Set oven to broil. Slice the avocado in half and remove the pit. If you want the avocado to stand on the plate evenly, slice a bit off the back so the avocado lays flat on the plate. Widen the hole in the pit so that about 1/4-1/2 inch thickness of avocado flesh is left around the outside of the shell. Add 1.5 Tbsp bacon, 1.5 Tbsp salsa, and 1/2 Tbsp red onion to each avocado half. Top with 1/4 cup cheese. Place avocados on a cookie sheet and put into the oven until the cheese is melted. Remove. Add 1/4 cup cucumber and 1/4 cup tomato to each avocado half. Drizzle with a bit of ranch dressing. Ready to serve.
