The avocado is a tree that is native to South Central Mexico, classified as a member of the flowering plant family. Avocado also refers to the tree’s fruit, which is botanically a large berry containing a single seed.

The avocado is a unique type of fruit. Most fruit consists primarily of carbohydrates, while avocado is high in healthy fats.

Avocados are heart-healthy. provide nearly 20 essential nutrients, including potassium, Vitamin E, B-vitamins, and folic acid and are a good source of fiber and folate.

As well, avocados also act as a “nutrient booster” by enabling the body to absorb more fat-soluble nutrients, such as alpha and beta-carotene and lutein, in foods that are eaten with the fruit.

  1. I dusted the avocados with a bit if Trader Joes Chili Lime to give the a little bit of an edge, delicious.

  2. 5 stars
    Paula!! Thank you!! I’m eating this at about 15 min after I read the recipe. My new fave!

    1. Yay!!! it’s so good isn’t it? Sometimes I just do not want to cook when I’m home alone and that’s so easy and so yummy!

    1. Really? ok, most do – or at least the ovens I’ve seen do. So think about it like ‘toasting’. Turn the top heating element on 450ish – you want it really hot. Then ‘toast’ the top of the avocado so that the cheese melts. The avocado will get warm but not hot & falling apart.

  3. I knew I was gonna put parm on my avocado for dinner, but it sounded bland. I googled those keywords, found this and am SO happy I tried it. The lime really just adds so much.

  4. 5 stars
    Looks so yumm and certainly pinning it up on my to do list. Will try and update soon. TIA
