Remember a couple weeks ago when I made those awesomeSpicy Pop Pulled Pork & Cilantro-Jalapeno Slaw Sandwiches? If you don’t, you totally need to head over there – print out the recipe, and make them right now.
That Cilantro-Jalapeno Slaw was so good, that I couldn’t imagine just having it with that dish – and wanted to do something a little different with it other than just put it on the side of a meal. Although that would be good too. Like enchiladas, or tacos, or….. Ok, I’m getting off track here, and getting hungry again.
Back to it.
What I did was I took the recipe for the cilantro jalapeno slaw & added diced avocado & tomato to it – and then stuffed it inside of an avocado shell, that still had a small rim of avocado along the inside. Squeezed some lime juice on top of each one, and a little sprinkling of good ol’ salt & pepper.
Just when I thought that slaw couldn’t get any better – it did.
It was extremely good – magnificent even. I mean, I love avocado anyhow – and then this slaw incorporated into it. It’s like true love. True love that you eat.
And, even though it wouldn’t be as good – you could always use your favorite deli coleslaw & mix in cilantro & jalapeno. I’m sure that would still be pretty darn yummy.
- half a batch of Cilantro-Jalapeno Slaw recipe for half batch to follow
- 6 avocados
- 1 medium tomato diced
- 3 limes
- salt & pepper to taste
- Hollow out your avocados, leaving a slight rim around the edge of the shell. Dice the avocado up in small bits.
- Combine the diced tomato & avocado with the cilantro-jalapeno slaw. Spoon into the hollowed avocado shells, and squeeze the juice of half a lime on each one, or less if you have really big limes. Sprinkle with salt & pepper to taste.
