Ingredients

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

Steps

  • 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.

  • 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.
