Tomato Cups
10
medium plum (Roma) tomatoes
1
ripe large avocado, pitted, peeled and finely chopped (about 1 cup)
1/2
cup finely chopped cucumber
1
medium jalapeño chile, seeded, finely chopped
3
to 4 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro or parsley
2
tablespoons lime juice
1/2
teaspoon salt
Topping
1/2
cup sour cream
2
teaspoons whipping cream or milk
1/2
teaspoon grated lime peel
1/2
teaspoon salt
  1. Cut each tomato in half crosswise. Using teaspoon, scoop out seeds and pulp from each tomato half, leaving enough tomato for a firm shell. If necessary, cut small slice from bottom so tomato half stands upright.
  2. In medium bowl, mix remaining tomato cup ingredients. In small bowl, mix topping ingredients. Spoon about 1 tablespoon avocado mixture into each tomato shell. Top each with about 1 teaspoon topping.

Kitchen Tips
The heat level of jalapeño chiles can vary. Start by using just half of the chile if you want a less spicy version.
Sprinkle the tops of the tomatoes with additional chopped cilantro.
