Avocado Crab Boats

5 medium ripe avocados, peeled and halved
½ cup mayonnaise
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 cans (6 oz each) lump crabmeat, drained
4 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro, divided
2 tbsp minced chives
1 serrano pepper, seeded and minced
1 tbsp capers, drained
¼ tsp pepper
1 cup shredded pepper jack cheese
½ tsp paprika
Lemon wedges

Preheat broiler. Place 2 avocado halves in a large bowl; mash lightly with a fork. Add mayonnaise and lemon juice; mix until well blended. Stir in crab, 3 tbsp cilantro, chives, serrano pepper, capers and pepper. Spoon into remaining avocado halves.

Transfer to a 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Sprinkle with cheese and paprika. Broil 4-5 in. from heat until cheese is melted, 3-5 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining cilantro; serve with lemon wedges.

Tips: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
