Hot Tuna Salads In Avocado Shells
|Chopped celery||1 Cup (16 tbs) (2 Medium Stalks)|
|Canned tuna||6 1⁄2 Ounce, drained (1 Can)|
|Mayonnaise/Salad dressing||1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)|
|Sliced pimiento||2 Ounce, drained (1 Jar)|
|Chili powder||1⁄2 Teaspoon|
|Grated cheddar/Taco seasoned cheese||2 Ounce (1/2 Cup)|
1. Mix celery, tuna, mayonnaise, pimiento and chili powder. Cut each avocado lengthwise into halves; remove pit. Cut thin layer from bottom of each half to prevent tipping if necessary.
2. Arrange avocados cut sides up in circle with narrow ends to center on 12-inch plate. Spoon about 1/4 cup tuna mixture onto each avocado half, spreading to cover entire cut surface. Cover with waxed paper and microwave on high (100%) 3 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese; rotate plate 1/2 turn. Microwave uncovered until tuna mixture is hot and cheese is melted, 3 to 5 minutes longer.
