The ingredient for this week is avocado, which I love. At Fresh Market they had organic avocados that were just about ready and they tasted great.
Here’s my recipe: I don’t have a name yet– ABT bites? only works with the ballet crowd
BAT bites–a little too Halloweeny. How about the totally pedestrian:
Tomatoes stuffed with avocado and bacon:
About 12 small tomatoes (we get the “Campari” brand–hydroponics)
2 avocados
4 strips of thick bacon, very crispy, then chopped
juice of 1 lime
4 dashes, or more, Tobasco Chipotle sauce
1 shallot minced
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
Use a melon baller to empty the tomatoes; also make a small cut off the bottom so they have a flat surface to stand.
Mix the rest of the ingredients in a small bowl.
Stuff the tomatoes. You can use the melon baller again to stuff.

I consider these a big success flavor wise. But–some of the tomatoes were too big. I would like to do it again with big cherry tomatoes so they’d really be just a bite.
