Baked Avocados Recipe

Ok, stay with me.  If you've never had a baked avocado before, it sounds disgusting.
But OH.  So good.  Baking the avocados makes them just a little bit more tender and a whole lot more the taste of the avocado plays off the taste of the stuffing mixture so well.  We have a local restaurant that makes these as an appetizer.  I tried my hand at it, and I promise, they're just as easy to make at home!
Recipe for Baked Avocados...such a simple recipe to make that absolutely wows guests!
Here's the recipe!

Baked Avocados

3 ripe avocados, halved and pitted
Juice of 1-2 lemons
1/3c light mayo
2 tbsp chili sauce (This makes it pretty spicy...cut down on this if you need to.)
5-6 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled


Take your halved, pitted avocados and, with a spoon, hollow out a little bit more of the hole for the pit.  Take this extra avocado meat and put it in a bowl.  Sprinkle the lemon juice over the avocado halves and put them, hole side up, on a cookie sheet.

Into the avocado meat, mix in the mayo, chili sauce, and bacon (sausage works great too!).  The sauce should be a coral color from the chili sauce.  Divide this mixture among the avocado halves.

Bake for 12-15 minutes at 425 degrees, until the mayo mixture is crispy on top and the avocado meat is just starting to get soft.
