Delicious Guacamole Stuffed Jalapenos
OMG……Made this late night and it was super yummy. Doing it again today for lunch!
Guacamole Stuffed Jalapenos (or for the milder mouth, try Poblano’s)
5 small-to-medium jalapeno peppers
2 ripe avocados, halved and pitted
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
3 tablespoons finely chopped red onion
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup thinly sliced hearts of romaine
Preheat broiler to High.
Place peppers on a large baking sheet. Broil 3 to 4 inches from the heat source, turning once or twice, until the skins blacken and blister, about 10 minutes total. Transfer to a large bowl, cover with a kitchen towel and let stand until cool enough to handle, about 10 minutes. Peel the peppers, leaving the stems attached.
Meanwhile, scoop avocados into a medium bowl and coarsely mash. Add cilantro, onion and salt; stir to combine.
Stem and seed 1 pepper; chop. Stir into the avocado mixture. Make a lengthwise slit through one wall of each of the remaining 4 peppers and carefully remove the seeds. Divide romaine and fill among the peppers, then fill with a generous 1/3 cup guacamole each.
