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.

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. Read More

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. Read More

Good on the grill. The avocados I had didn't have a lot of flavor. Next time I will try the Hass Avocados. I favored them with Old Bay Spice & Garlic salt. Read More

After cooking, add salsa or shrimp cocktail to the hole left by the pit for more flavor/interest. Read More
