SlimCado red pepper

Heating an avocado makes a side dish worthy of any beef entrée. Just take a few minutes to heat some garlic and onion to add to it. Adding another veggie like red pepper simply adds some crunch.


2 tbs vegetable oil
1 lime
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup red onion, chopped
1 red pepper
1 SlimCado® avocado

Yield: 4 servings
Prep time: 10 minutes, plus 11 minutes of cooking.
