I love avocados and to our delight so does babygirl. A couple of weeks ago I spied with my hungry eyes a recipe on Food Network for Stuffed Avocados and instantly needed to try it. Last night I went to the supermarket to pick up some avocado for babygirl and decided what better time to test it out.
**the photo included mayonnaise but the mix of the other ingredients was so fresh and citrusy tasting that I opted not to use it and I totally forgot to use the cucumbers***
Squeeze juice from 1 half of the lime into a bowl with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 1 tablespoon of chopped cilantro and lime zest. Whisk all 4 ingredients well.
Cut 1 half of the mango into small cubes.
Chop onions (the amount of onion is to your liking).
Stir mango & onions into the lime juice, olive oil, cilantro and lime zest and toss gently to ensure it is well mixed in.

Add lump crabmeat to mixture. Stir lightly as not to unlump the crabmeat too much.

Cut avocados in half and remove pit
Squeeze lime juice from the other half of the lime onto & rub lime around the meat of the avocado to prevent it from turning brown.

Cut a small portion of the bottom of the avocado off to prevent it from rolling around the plate.
Depending on how pretty you want it to look use an ice cream scooper or spoon to place crabmeat mixture into avocado. I don’t own an ice cream scooper. If I did I’d then have to buy ice cream and since I’m trying to lose weight ice cream is the devil right about now. So I used a spoon and I think it came out pretty anyways.

Stuff your face…I know we did!
I love this recipe! It was fast. No stove required. Simple ingredients. Very fresh tasting. And super healthy! I can see myself making this alot during the summer months when it’s just too hot to cook over a stove.
No worries…I got this!!!!
