Start to finish: 30 minutes
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium yellow onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 cup fresh breadcrumbs (about 3 slices bread, finely chopped in a food processor)
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro
4 large tomatoes
Heat the oven to 400 F. Coat a 9-by-9-inch baking pan with cooking spray.
In a medium skillet over medium-high, heat the oil. Add the onion, garlic and coriander. Cook for 5 minutes, or just until tender. Stir in the breadcrumbs, cheese, salt, pepper and cilantro.
Cut a 1/2 inch slice off the top of each tomato. Use a melon baller to scoop out the insides of the tomato, leaving the outer flesh intact. Spoon a quarter of the cheese mixture into each tomato. Arrange the filled tomatoes in the prepared pan. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until tender and bubbly.
