Reynolds Kitchens® Tips

Reynolds Kitchens Tip

Lining your pan with Reynolds Wrap® Aluminum Foil makes clean up easy!


  • 2 ripe but firm avocados, halved and pitted, skin left on
  • ¼ cup shredded extra-sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1 small chipotle chile in adobo, minced (about 1 teaspoon), or to taste
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice, plus 4 wedges for serving
  • Pinch of salt
  • Reynolds Wrap® Aluminum Foil


Step 1

Preheat broiler to High. Line a baking sheet with Reynolds Wrap® Aluminum Foil. Place avocado halves on the prepared pan.

Step 2

Thoroughly combine cheese, chipotle, lime juice and salt in a small bowl. Evenly divide the cheese mixture among the avocado halves. Broil 3 to 4 inches from the heat source until the cheese is bubbling and beginning to brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Serve warm with lime wedges.

Chipotle chile peppers in adobo sauce are smoked jalapeños packed in a flavorful, spicy sauce. Look for the small cans with Mexican foods at large supermarkets. Once opened, they’ll keep for up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator or 6 months in the freezer.
