I may or may not be obsessed with the concept of stuffed avocado. It’s just fun, and cool, and of course, delicious. You may have seen me on Snapchat (@asimplepantry) last week when I made a super simple garlic shrimp stuffed avocado, and again this morning as I made this breakfast right here. It’s full of my fave southwest flavors, so it seems only fitting to call it Southwestern Stuffed Avocado.
It sounds a lot more appetizing than the plain ol’ egg stuffed avocados I was calling them on Snapchat. I wasn’t being terribly creative at the time with my words. It happens. So sue me.
But don’t actually, OK? OK.
Really, the true secret to keeping this a fast and easy recipe that tastes amazing is using my fave pantry staple: HERDEZ® Salsa. Like, hello, delicious.
Please say that with a valley girl accent. Please. It’s just how it’s meant to be.
Between the eggs, tomatoes, Queso Fresco, and refreshing cilantro, just has to be muh favorite salsa. Pretty much no meal is complete without it. Truly.

Southwestern Stuffed Avocado Recipe
- 2 Eggs
- 1 Small Tomato, seeded and diced
- 1 Medium-Sized Avocado
- 1/4 C Queso Fresco
- 1/4 C Fresh Cilantro, roughly chopped
- 1/4 C HERDEZ® Salsa
- Salt & Pepper, to taste
- Spray a frying pan with cooking spray and heat over medium low. Whisk the eggs vigorously in a small bowl for a minute, then add to the frying pan and scramble gently until done, around 7 minutes.
- While the eggs are cooking, cut the avocado in half, discard the pit, and use a spoon to scoop out the insides of the avocado, leaving about 1/4" of avocado around the edge. Dice up the avocado and gently toss it in a bowl with the tomato and queso fresco.
- When the eggs have finished cooking, add them to the the bowl with the avocado, tomato, and queso fresco, stir, then divide between the two avocado halves. Top with the cilantro and salsa, season with salt and pepper if necessary, and serve immediately.
