Grilled Avocados

Rated as 3.67 out of 5 Stars

"Had some ripe avocados left over. They were extras from guacamole the previous weekend. So I gave this quick and extremely easy recipe a shot on the grill, and the wife and kids loved it. Fresh ones are good too. Use paprika instead of the chipotle and chili powder for less spicy. Canola oil can be substituted for olive oil if desired."

  2. Whisk olive oil, ground chipotle pepper, and chili powder together in a bowl; brush over the entire surface of the cut-side of each avocado.
  3. Grill avocados, cut-side down, on the preheated grill until grill-lines begin to form on the avocado flesh, about 5 minutes.

Very good! All it needed was a sprinkling of sea salt at the end...tasty! I would make these again. Thanks for sharing. :)

These were ok. I made them exactly as written. A bit bland but a great idea on how to grill avocados! Next time I may add a pinch of salt and some fresh lime juice.

Not a fan of spicy, I used a Chipotle Lime seasoning made by Wildtree. It was great! Thanks for the simple and delicious idea!

We found these fairly bland, but I like the basis. When I try again, I will slice, and season the slices individually to get a bit more flavor. I think Cajun would be good on this.
