    Sharon123's Note:

    Slices of eggplant are sprinkled with chili powder, baked, then topped with slices of red onion, tomato, avocado and pepper-jack cheese and broiled to melt the cheese. This makes a great side dish with a Southwestern-style dinner. Also great for appetizers. I'm even thinking this would be great for breakfast with a fried egg! I wonder if it would stay on top of the stack? Adapted from Better Homes & Gardens magazine.

      I served this as a side and it was delightful. I could have made a meal out of it well.... I guess I did eat more than my share but that left more steak for DH. I love eggplant and this is certainly an eggplant keeper. Prepared in a convection oven and it turned out perfect. Made for PRMR.

      It's a great appetizer. The chili powder is great in this dish. I used green onion instead of red onion. Thanks Sharon :) Made for Newest Zaar tag
