I want to thank three people for assisting with this recipe. Lily Pink for making me realize how valuable guacamole can be to a low carb meal plan (and for the NAME of this recipe).
I’d been experimenting with Avocados and Guacamole for some time. I started thinking how avocado would taste if prepared similar to my mashed potato recipe (minus the lime juice and the boiling). So I played around and finally dialed in a recipe.
THIS recipe is great for those with diabetes because it’s loaded with good fats, it’s low carb and very LOW net carbs…. I have almost no Blood Sugar affect after eating avocados. (as always, test for yourself to be sure)
On to the recipe! :) — just an FYI … this may place me into the Foodie Category… I can live with that. :)
Stuffed Guacamole Supreme
1 Florida Avocado (or two of the smaller hand sized varieties)
2 TBS Butter
2 TBS of Sour Cream (or yogurt) This is optional if dairy free.
2 Garlic Cloves (1 if you aren’t a fan of garlic)
2 Caps of Texas Pete (or preferred hot sauce)
8 pc BACON – this is a minimum ….. :))
1 whole lime or lemon
1 cheddar cheese
Red Pepper – ‘to taste’ – I used 1/4 teaspoon
Tony Chachere’s – ‘to taste’ – I used 1/4 teaspoon
Paprika – ‘to taste’ – I used 1/2 teaspoon
1. Place Bacon in the oven and allow to broil on low while prepping other ingredients. I cooked a pound of bacon and ate most of it while I was preparing this dish. :))
2. If the avocado is refrigerated, remove several hours prior to preparation if possible. Cut the avocado in half and using a spoon, spoon out the ‘meat’ of the avocado.
3) Place in an oven ready pot/pan. Add the 2 TBS of butter and warm in the oven… when the butter is fully melted, remove from the oven.
4. Add all the other ingredients including squeezing the lime or lemon and ‘mash’ the avocado,. I used a fork, it’s not important to make them ‘creamy’… but a food processor could be used if desired.
5. By this time the bacon should be done. I allow bacon to cool, I like cutting the bacon by hand. Once again, a food processor could be used if desired. Cut the eight (8) pieces of bacon and add half to the avocado mixture.
6. Add the avocado mixture back into the avocado shells and sprinkle the remainder of the bacon on top of the avocado mixture.
7. Next, shave or grate cheese to cover the avocados, place in an over ready pan (I used a cast iron skillet) and broil on low until cheese is melted.
** Honestly…. I wanted to ‘brown’ the cheese more… but I was like a kid in a candy store. I COULD NOT WAIT!!!!
I’d been finger testing the ‘concoction’ and already knew it was soooo tasty!!! :)
8. Here is my recipe for cooking “Chicken Thighs” … although ANY meat could be cooked this way.
Below are the re-broiled chicken thighs. I re-broiled them to darken them up a bit more….
Th-th-th-that’s all folks! :)
