Guacamole Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes

 

Last week, the lovely Julie of The Little Kitchen invited me for Bunko night. I had never played Bunko, so it was a new experience. The party was also a 1,000 Cooks For The Cure event. We all brought an appetizer, Julie made some killer smoked salmon rangoons and delicious cupcakes. I would like to send a special thanks to Katie, who carpooled with me. It made the hour drive to and from the party much more interesting, and I got to drive her new Prius as well! Sweet ride.

 

For my part, I brought guacamole stuffed cherry tomatoes. I saw a picture of stuffed cherry tomatoes in an old W-S cookbook, but they were stuffed with chopped olives. All I could think about when seeing that picture was this one scene from Sex and the City. So I opted to fill the tomatoes with guac. The melon baller was infinitely useful when I had to hollow out the tomatoes. And I added mango to the guacamole at the request of fellow blogger Kelly. Here’s a picture of the four of us (me, Katie, Julie, Kelly) at the party.  P.S., I won at Bunko!

Guacamole Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes

Guacamole Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes

Ingredients

50 cherry tomatoes, about 3-4 lbs
For guacamole
3 ripe avocados
Juice from 2 limes
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbs fresh chopped cilantro
1 mango, small dice
Salt and pepper

Instructions

  1. For each cherry tomato, slice off the top, and slice a teeny bit off the bottom (to give the tomato stability.) Using a melon baller, scoop the insides out of the tomatoes. Place tomatoes upside down on a few layers of paper towels.
  2. Meanwhile, scoop the flesh out of the avocados into a medium bowl. Stir in the lime juice, garlic, cilantro, and mango. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Spoon guacamole into a zipper seal plastic bag. Snip one of the bottom corners off the bag.
  3. Turn tomatoes over and place onto a serving plate. Pipe the guacamole into each tomato. Serve immediately.

Notes

Make sure the mango is diced small enough to fit through the opening of the piping bag.

  1. These tasted so good, Suzanne! Thanks again for coming to my 1,000 Cooks for the Cure party and for donating! 😀

  2. These were amazing and I can’t wait to make them in the future! Thanks again for driving us home!!!

  3. What a cute presentation. Totally lets you skip putting the tomatoes in the guacamole!

  4. Hey Suzanne, it’s Julia! Your beautiful photo inspired me to make these, but I stuffed regular tomatoes and used it as a my veggie for dinner, as opposed to an appetizer. I was really missing guacamole, but since I’m pregnant I had to find a healthier way to eat it than downing a whole bag of tortilla chips. Thanks for giving me a healthier option, they were great!
