Loaded Baked Avocados

5 avocados
10 slices of cooked bacon
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
10 slices of colby cheese
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon mustard powder
1 “stalk” of green onion (about 2 tablespoons cut up)
6oz yogurt or Sour cream

Mix all of the seasonings/spices and let it sit for a minute. Cut open your avocado so that you they are in halves. Take out the pits, but leave the skin on. Use a knife to make criss-cross lines in each avocado half. Then put seasoning on each one. Don’t be afraid to use a lot. The flavors will sink into the avocado as it cooks, making them taste delicious!

Cut up the bacon slices and put some on each avocado. Put the shredded cheeses on next. Then cover each avocado with two slices of colby. Bake at 375, uncovered, for about 10 minutes. Then Broil on high for a few minutes, until melted and slightly browned. Let them rest out of the oven for a minute, then top with the yogurt and green onion slices.
