South of the Border Bruschetta

16 Jul

After making the traditional Italian style bruschetta, my creative juices were flowing and I wanted to create a different take. Remembering I had an avocado, the idea came quickly to make a Tex-Mex style bruschetta. Let me tell you, these flavors work perfectly and make for a tasty option to add to taco night! Or maybe a Cinco de Mayo party? Either way, this dish totally works – hope yall enjoy! πŸ™‚

South of the Border Bruschetta

1 small avocado, diced
1 red chili pepper, minced (about 1 Tbsp)
1 1/2 Tbsp cilantro, diced
Zest and juice of 1 small lime
Dash of salt
Cheese crumbles (cheddar, pepper jack, etc…)
Baguette, sliced and toasted

Combine the first five ingredients in a bowl and mix together. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes to let the flavors mix well. Toast slices of baguette and top with the mixture. Sprinkle cheese on top, if desired. Serve and enjoy!
