"This is a recipe that I hope gets passed down. Everyone seems to like it. We make it as a main dish when I make it with chicken. We also make it a side when omitting the chicken. We will then have grilled chicken with it."

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Scoop out some of the flesh in the center of each avocado; place into mixing bowl. Add chicken, cream cheese, tomatoes, salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper; mix well to combine. Scoop spoonfuls of chicken mixture into the wells of each avocado; top each with generous amount of Parmesan cheese. Place avocado halves, face-up, in muffin cups to stabilize.
  3. Bake avocados in preheated oven until cheese is melted, 8 to 10 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • Substitute 6 ounces crab meat (drained well if using canned meat) for the chicken; along with 1 tablespoon of scallions.
  • Leftover mixture can be added to hollowed out tomatoes or peppers and cooked in the same way.
  • Cooking time and flavor will vary depending on how chicken is cooked (grilled, broiled, or stewed).
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

To make on a cookie sheet, simply slice a half dollar sized circle on the bottom of the avocado skin on the bottom to keep them in place!
