Total Time: 

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 ripe but firm avocados, halved and pitted, skin left on
  • 1/4 cup shredded extra-sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1 small chipotle chile in adobo (see Tip), minced (about 1 teaspoon), or to taste
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice, plus 4 wedges for serving
  • Pinch of salt
  • PREPARATION

    1. Preheat broiler to High.
    2. Place avocado halves on a baking sheet.
    3. Thoroughly combine cheese, chipotle, lime juice and salt in a small bowl. Evenly divide the cheese mixture among the avocado halves. Broil 3 to 4 inches from the heat source until the cheese is bubbling and beginning to brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Serve warm with lime wedges.

    TIPS & NOTES

    • Chipotle chile peppers in adobo sauce are smoked jalapeños packed in a flavorful, spicy sauce. Look for the small cans with Mexican foods at large supermarkets. Once opened, they’ll keep for up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator or 6 months in the freezer.
