Pico de Gallo Stuffed Avocados

Since today marks the start of Labor Day weekend, I wanted to share a recipe that would showcase all of my favorite summer flavors but also something that was super easy to put together.  These stuffed avocados are just that. A quick home made pico de gallo made with perfectly ripe tomatoes is stuffed into creamy avocados and then the whole thing is drizzled with lime juice for a burst of citrus flavor. It’s the perfect way to celebrate Labor Day.

When I was a little one I used to think that Labor Day was the day that all pregnant women went into labor. It makes total sense to a kid. However, as I sit here a little more round then I usually am, I can say that I am glad that that is not the case. Not that I’m not ready to meet our little man. I certainly am. We’re just not quite ready to bring him home yet, AKA the nursery isn’t done. We haven’t even started. It is still a guest room/office/Christmas decoration storage room. So this Labor Day, I think I will begin preparing for my upcoming labor day by getting the nursery ready. However, I do suppose I will make time for a few of these stuffed avocados. Judging by all the dancing around he does after I eat one, baby boy seems to like them.

The Recipe

  • Serves 4
  • Prep time:

Ingredients:

  • 3 roma tomatoes, seeded and diced small
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and diced small
  • 1/4 cup finely diced yellow onion

Enjoy!

    After a week under the weather with tummy troubles, it’s the best news in the world that these avocados look as good to me as they do. We’ll be at a farmers market in the morning and the only thing we need to make this is some tomato and a lime. Bingo.
