Avocado's Grilled and Filled Recipe!



Just cut your avocado in half, remove the seed, and brush it with some lime juice and olive oil. Place it flesh-side down on your hot grill for about 5 to 7 minutes, grill cover down.


Remove it from your grill and fill the hole with your favorite salsa and top that with a dollap of sour cream. Add some chopped cilantro, a good sprinkling of sea salt and drizzle lime juice over all of it. The avocado meat gets a little soft and warm and smoky, its super delicious. Grab those favorite tortilla chips and scoop away! chips.


Salsa Dip
1 bottle or can of fire-roasted tomatoes
1/8 diced onion
3 cloves garlic
1 tablespoon lime juice

¼ teaspoon cayenne or crushed red pepper(you can also throw in a jalapeno's if you want I do!!!)
½ teasoon kosher or seasalt
3 or 4 sprigs of cilantro,

Optional I love peppers so add them if you love peppers!

Dump it all in the blender and process until it becomes a perfect blend for your dipping needs~


Taste and add more salt, cayenne or cilantro if needed.  Fill the grilled avocado and dip away!

This looks great! I have never considered using avocados as the serving "dish" before. And the best part? You get to eat the dish!

ya know, I have grilled a lot of things but never recall doing avocado - just great, esp filled with salsa (and grilled shrimp)

Seriously that easy? Awesome. The dip even comes with its own container!
