1 (12-oz.) sourdough baguette, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
3 HASS AVOCADOS FROM MEXICO
1/2 medium-size jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely chopped
1 garlic clove, pressed
3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro, divided

How to Make It
Preheat oven to 350°. Place bread slices on a baking sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until toasted, turning after 8 minutes.
Meanwhile, cut avocados in half. Scoop pulp into a bowl, and mash with a pastry blender or fork until slightly chunky. Stir in jalapeño, garlic, 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro, 1 Tbsp. finely chopped red onion, 2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice, and 3/4 tsp. salt. Cover with plastic wrap, allowing plastic wrap to touch mixture, until ready to serve.
Toss grape tomatoes with remaining 1 Tbsp. each chopped fresh cilantro, red onion, fresh lime juice, and 1/4 tsp. salt.
Top each bread round with avocado mixture. Spoon tomato mixture over avocado mixture using a slotted spoon or fork. Sprinkle with crumbled queso fresco. Garnish, if desired.
