  • 1 canned crabmeat or canned tuna

  • Cream cheese

  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

  • Freshly milled black pepper

  • 1.

    Cut the avocado in half and remove the stone, which is much too hard to eat anyway.

    Add the crabmeat (or tuna), lemon juice, a shake of black pepper and enough cream cheese to make a smooth blend.

  • 4.

    Pile the mixture into the avocado skins.

  • 5.
