Guacamole Stuffed Tomatoes | Downshiftology

Guacamole stuffed tomatoes are a fun, bite-sized appetizer bursting with fresh flavors. Just whip up a batch of guacamole and stuff it into cherry tomato halves. It’s as easy as that!

Finger foods and nibbles are a must for holidays, parties, and gatherings. During summer, these guacamole stuffed tomatoes are perfect for a sunny, backyard barbecue. And during Christmas, you can’t beat how adorable, and festive they are (hello, red and green!). Even better? No chips are needed for this batch of guacamole as the tomatoes provide the perfect delivery device. Just pick them up and pop them in your mouth!

This refreshing appetizer strikes the perfect balance of creamy and crisp, it’s naturally low-carb, and it’ll brighten up any serving platter – no matter the season.

Ingredients For Guacamole Stuffed Tomatoes

Very similar ingredients to my classic guacamole recipe. But instead of the tomatoes being in the guac, they’re outside the guac.

  • Cherry Tomatoes: Grab a box of large cherry tomatoes (not grape tomatoes, which are too small). Cherry tomatoes are naturally more round, which makes them easier to stuff.
  • Avocados: You’ll want your avocados perfectly ripe to make it easier to mash.
  • Onions & Garlic: I like to use yellow onions, but red works too.
  • Cilantro: It isn’t guacamole without this herb!
  • Jalapeño: Adds a slight kick to the guacamole. But if you don’t like a little heat, you can omit this.
  • Lime Juice: Always opt for fresh limes, it makes all the difference.

How To Make Guacamole Stuffed Tomatoes

With a bit of prep work, this recipe comes together fast!

  • Prep the tomatoes. Slice them in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. I find a small 1/2 teaspoon measuring spoon is perfect for this.
  • Make the guacamole. Mash the avocados, then stir in the onion, cilantro, jalapeño, lime juice, and salt in a bowl.
  • Time to stuff. While you can use a spoon, I find it’s easier to cut the corner off a plastic bag, stuff it with the guacamole, and add tiny mounds into each tomato half.

Can You Store This?

Since guacamole oxidizes and browns easily, it’s best to make these fresh. And while the lime juice helps to slow down the oxidizing, these are best enjoyed soon after stuffing.
