Avocado Baked Eggs
- 2 avocados
- 4 eggs
- Southwestern seasoning
- 1 tsp. chili oil
- 1 garlic scape or green onion, thinly sliced
- 1 orange bell pepper, seeded and sliced
- 1 c. grape tomatoes
- Warm flour or corn tortillas
Adjust the oven rack to the middle position and preheat to 450°F.
Cut each avocado in half and remove the pit. Using a spoon, scrape out the center of each halved avocado so that it is large enough to accommodate an egg (about 1 1/2 tablespoons), then place on baking sheet. Break an egg into the center of each avocado. Don’t worry if some of the white spills out as long as the yolk is intact. Sprinkle the avocado and egg with the Southwestern seasoning as generously as you desire.
Bake in the preheated oven until the whites are set and yolk is at your desired consistency, about 15-20 minutes. Remove the baking sheet from the oven.
Meanwhile, heat the chili oil over medium-high heat in a small skillet and add the garlic scapes or green onions, bell pepper, and grape tomatoes. Sauté until the vegetables are soft, 5-8 minutes. Set aside.
To serve, place an avocado half on a plate with a flour or corn tortilla and spoon some of the warm vegetables onto the tortilla. Scoop the avocado and egg onto the tortilla and enjoy it while it's warm.
