How to peel and cube an avocado in 3 seconds ~ Kitchen hacks

My family all LOVES guacamole it is rather easy to make just takes some time to chop everything up. This is a trick that will take your chopping time down to about 3 seconds per avocado half.  All you need is a cooling rack with a square  top. Place the rack on top of a bowl to catch the cubed avocado. Cut the avocado in half, take the pit out and then SMASH it flat against the cooling rack. Give the skin a slight push forward to clean off any remaining avocado and you are DONE. You have peeled and cubed an avocado in about 3 seconds. Brilliant right… I love this kitchen hack!

This works great for makes guacamole!

My favorite Guacamole recipe is, 2 diced avocados, 1/3 of a cup minced red onion, 1/3 of a cup diced tomatoes, 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro, 1 jalapeno pepper (take out seeds and ribs) minced,  pinch of garlic powder, juice from half a lime, salt and pepper to taste.  Mix well and enjoy!

Stuffed Jalapenos With Crispy Bacon

Stuffed Jalapenos With Crispy Bacon, quick and easy recipe, party Recipes, Superbowl Recipes

Looking for a finger licking good recipe for an appetizer or finger food, then you have got to try these Stuffed Jalapenos With Crispy Bacon.  They are easy to make and a low cost recipe as well.  Best part is you can prep them BEFORE your guests show up, then pop them in the oven right before they arrive for a hot and tasty treat with no stress.

Stuffed Jalapenos With Crispy Bacon, quick and easy recipe, party finger food

Yields 24 stuffed pepper halves. Prep time 10 minutes, cooking time 15 minutes

For this recipe you will need:

  • 12 medium jalapeno peppers
  • 6 strips of thick cut bacon (cooked and crumbled)
  • 8 oz cream cheese brick softened to room temperature
  • 2/3 mexi style  blend cheese (shredded)
  • 2 tablespoon  ranch dip seasoning dry mix

Stuffed Jalapenos With Crispy Bacon, quick and easy recipe, party Recipes, Superbowl Recipes. Can't wait to try this recipe

Wash peppers, then cut in half lengthwise and take out seeds and ribs.  You might want to wear gloves while you do this, or put oil on your hands, then wash them with soap after your done. I found using a small spoon or even a grapefruit spoon works really well for getting the ribs and seeds out.  You want to make sure you get all the seeds out because that is where the heat is, if you like spicy then keep the ribs in.   Stuffed Jalapenos With Crispy Bacon, quick and easy recipe, party Recipes, Superbowl Recipes. Can't wait to try this recipe

In a mixing bowl add the cream cheese, shredded cheese and ranch seasoning.  Mix well and spoon into jalapeno halves, place  cooked bacon on top.  Put on baking sheet, and cook in the oven at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.

Quick tip *** I found that if you put them on a metal baking rack the peppers will stay upright during the cooking process and not tip over.  When they tip over the cheese tends to slide out, so this helps prevent that.  Make sure you put the rack on top of a cookie sheet for easier transport and clean up.
