    I've been doing this for years but without BBQ'ing the avocado. This is a nice twist to it.
    Great healthy snack - I use it for appetizers quite often in the summer or winter. - 4/30/14

  • Tried this recipe to add as a side dish to my Alaskan Cod Tortillas recipe. I prepared the two dishes for lunch that included my Hispanic landscaper work crew. We all Loved it! So, if it goes over big with native Hispanics, I'd say it's a HIT! I loved the unique twist of grilling the avocado. - 6/28/14

  • This sounds great, but isn't a full half of avocado a lot? I thought a serving was 1/4 of an avocado! Sounds really yummy, though!! I'm going to try it one day! - 6/27/14

  • Did not have correct cheese to "crumble" so used the dipping cheese and just poured some on top. My family and friends were very skeptical but LOVED them. Now make them often. - 6/27/14

  • Light bulb moment - by grill, do you mean on the barbecue?

    So what do you call toasting? Or does that depend on how and where? Especially as a don't have a toaster. - 5/26/14
