spicy goat cheese-stuffed prosciutto avocados appetizer recipe

I had been drooling over this recipe from Domestic Fits for goat cheese-stuffed avocado wrapped in prosciutto for a few months now. On Friday me & the boyfriend happened to make a stop at Fairway and I couldn't resist buying the ingredients & getting it out of my system. Here's what you'll need for my poor girl spin on the recipe:

Prosciutto, Goat Cheese, 2 or 3 avocados, & Red Pepper

Now pit, peel & cut your avocados into slices (totally NOT as easy as it seems). I also took a spoon & made a little circular pit for the sections not affected by the pitting (not entirely necessary but made a place for the the cheese to sit nicely in). As you can see they are a little wonky looking, but that won't really matter much by the end- promise!

The original recipe calls for chili pepper but we didn't have that in the cabinet so we decided that this would suffice:

Sprinkle the avocados with the red pepper for a little punch and top with goat cheese:

The original recipe calls for 1/2 or 1/4 tsp per avocado slice but I did it by eye. It is not only yummy, but cancels out the hot pepper & adds a creamy texture to the whole recipe, so don't skimp on it!

Now take your prosciutto and cut it to size (enough to fit around the center of the avocado & cheese, but still exposing the ends), and wrap those suckers! If cutting just doesn't *ahem* cut it (prosciutto is a knife's worst enemy), just fold the sides of the prosciutto inward until you get your perfect size, wrap around the avocado with folded sides face down, overlap the ends... & fin!

The best thing about them is that they look & taste fantastic without much effort, only a few ingredients, & little time to make. You can serve them as h'orderves at your next shindig or refrigerate them until later for a snack during Brad Meltzer's Decoded (I think you can tell which one we decided on)! I received rave reviews from the boyfriend & his mom and had to stop myself from devouring the entire plate, so they're definitely worth a try.
Make sure to let me know if you try them out!
