Pico De Gallo Stuffed Baked Avocado Recipe Stuffed Finished Square

Pico de Gallo Stuffed Baked Avocados

Pico de Gallo stuffed baked Avocados are one of my favorite side dishes for Mexican food!  Quick, easy and healthy - this is superfood at it's finest!


  • 2 avocados (cut in half)
  • 1 ripe tomato (diced)
  • 1 small yellow onion (diced)
  • 2 tbsp fresh cilantro (diced)
  • dash garlic salt
  • dash table salt
  • 1/2 lime (juice)
  • 3 oz cojita cheese
  • 3 oz mexican shredded cheese


  • Make your Pico de Gallo 1-4 hours ahead of time and place it in the fridge.  This will allow the flavors to mingle a bit, letting the oils from the cilantro and onion disperse so it’s more of an even bite throughout.
  • You want a perfectly ripe Avocado here.  Overly ripe ones will fall apart.  For this dish, you want to be able to slightly flatten the underside to that it sits flat on a pan – so that’s why I go by.  If I press the underside firmly and just get it to flatten out slightly, we’re in business.
  • I use both Cojita cheese and the Kirkland Mexican Cheese Blend on mine.  You can go with one or the other if it’s easier, since you’ll only really use a little of each.
  • If you want more space to be able to stuff, simply spoon out some of the avocado flesh to create a larger hole.
