Do you ever look around at your co-workers lunches and either 1) gag, or 2) feel very impressed that they are such amazing chefs? Me too. I admit that I am pretty nosy when it comes to food, so I’m always checking out what everyone has brought from home. I think it just so happens that I have worked with some really good cooks because on some days, I just want to walk around the table with a fork and try out everyone’s leftovers from the night before.
Well, if you are looking for a healthy lunch that is both filling and sure to impress any nosy co-worker (like me), these Mexican crab-stuffed avocados are the perfect choice. They take two minutes to make, but are gorgeous and will make you look like you are an expert in the kitchen. Best of all, they are delectable and won’t leave you hungry. Take these to work, and you’ll be the talk of the break room table.
2 ripe avocados, sliced in half lengthwise and pits removed
8 oz. container of crab meat (sold in the fresh seafood department in most grocery stores)
2 Tbsp. mayo
2 green onions, sliced
2 Tbsp. cilantro, chopped
2 tsp. jalapenos, finely chopped
2 tsp. cumin
2 tsp. paprika
Juice from one lime
