  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Scrape out the center of each avocado half, enough to hold an egg, then place the halves on a baking sheet.
  • Sprinkle lime juice over avocado halves, then add a dash of salt to each avocado.
  • Break an egg - yolk intact - into each avocado half, then place the baking sheet in the oven.
  • Bake the avocados for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the egg reaches your preferred firmness.
  • Remove from oven and sprinkle the avocados with black pepper and cayenne pepper powder, then serve.


For extra heat, serve with sliced fresh red chilies (red serrano, Fresno, or jalapeño).
