Tuna Stuffed Avocado



I'm getting a lot of inspiration from FaceBook lately as all these food pictures and videos are popping up.  This recipe comes from The Stay At Home Chef.
I got all excited when I realized I had every ingredient to make this for lunch today.  It only took a about ten minutes to make, so easy and healthy.  I love tuna but I usually load it with mayo and make it into a cheesy grilled tuna melt.  I won't be giving up my tuna melts but these delicious stuffed avocados will be making an appearance often! 
This recipe is easily made for one, two or more.  Today I just made one avocado so I used one can of tuna and a little of each ingredient.  For a light lunch I could see just eating one of the halves BUT I had no one to share these with today so I ate the whole thing!  YUM!
  • Ingredients:
  • 4 avocados, halved and pitted
  • 4-5 oz. can solid white tuna (albacore packed in water), drained
  • 1 tablespoon red onion, finely diced
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, finely diced
  • 1 jalapeno, minced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
  • 1 fresh lime, juiced
  • salt and pepper
  1. Scoop out some of the avocado, leave just enough to make a bowl out of the avocado.  Place the scooped avocado into a bowl, mash. 
  2. Add the onion, bell pepper, jalapeno, and cilantro to the mixing bowl.  Pour lime juice over and add tuna.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.   Light toss all together until everything is mixed.
  3. Scoop the tuna into the avocado bowls.
