Zappo Avocado Appetizers
- 1 lg Fresh Jalapeno chile
- 1/2 c mixed ?; Coarsely grated
- 2 Eggs; slightly beaten
- Margarita Jalapeno Salsa
- 1 ts Baking Powder
- 1 c All-purpose flour
- Vegetable oil; for deepfrying
- 1/2 ts Salt
- 3/4 c Cornmeal
- 2 Avocados
- 1 c milk
- I added red Chile flakes to batter
Halve, pit & carefully peel avocados. Place strips of jalapeno in each cavity, then pack cavaties with cheeses. In a deep, heavy saucepan, heat 2-3 inches of oil to 375. Then in a bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, salt and cornmeal. Beat in milk and eggs until blended. Dip each filled avacado half into batter to coat completely; fry in hot oil until golden brown. Serve hot, with a side dish of salsa. Makes 4 servings.
**Note - I'm going to add shrimp or crab next time!
