Total time
Recipe type: Entertaining
Makes: 24 Tomatoes or 6 Appetizer portions
  • 24 large cherry tomatoes (about 2 pints)
  • 1 lime, halved
  • Salt
  • 1 cup Fresh Guacamole (see recipe below)
  • 6 corn tortilla chips, crushed
  • Chili powder
  • Fresh cilantro
  1. Slice the tops and bottoms off each cherry tomato, cutting just a thin sliver from the bottoms for the tomatoes to stand upright.
  2. Use a melon baller or grapefruit spoon to remove and discard the pulp and seeds from each tomato, placing them on a serving dish as you finish.
  3. Squeeze the lime over all the tomatoes on the serving dish, and then lightly sprinkle with salt.
  4. Fill each tomato with 2 teaspoons of the Fresh Guacamole, letting it pile up and out of the tomato.
  5. Top the filled tomatoes with crushed tortilla chips, and then sprinkle lightly with chili powder. Garnish each with a leaf of fresh cilantro and serve.

HELPFUL TIP: Stores are often overstocked with (oval) grape tomatoes and have very few (round) cherry tomatoes. If you are having trouble finding them, don’t forget to check the organic produce section. They may even have both yellow and red cherry tomatoes to make a multicolored platter!
