Couldn't get enough of this...we loved it! I used frozen cooked cocktail shrimp & a can of fancy white crab meat (finally found a recipe that the cheaper stuff is good in!). I used lite ranch dressing instead of mayo & I used Old Bay instead of salt. And I probably used an extra tbp. of cucumber (I wouldn't suggest leaving it out...it adds a lot to the dish). The filling was really, really good w/ the avocado!

I added onion/garlic powders, dill weed and minced red onion. I couldn't see the purpose of wasting a perfectly wonderful avacado just to use the shell as a bowl, so I chopped the avacado meat and added it into the mix. This made a great lunch Annie and thanks!

This was a hit as the second course of my Valentine's dinner. Like other's have said already, I saw no point in wasting a perfectly good avocado, so decided to make it part of the meal. I actually did not stuff them at all. I sliced the avocado, squeezed a lime over it(both for flavor and to prevent browning), and used it as a bed for the filling. For the filling, my valentine is allergic to shrimp, so I used premium crab to make up for the lack of shrimp - the jumbo lump crab -, I also put a little extra cucumber (someone here already said it, but it bears saying again, the cucumber really makes the dish, so don't leave it out),some fresh dill, and although it was valentine's day, I couldnt help adding a few dashes of garlic powder - it was the perfect touch. I served it on top of the lime-soaked avocado slices - DELICIOUS! So good in fact, my valentine was hesitant to move on to the next course!
