Earlier this summer I was reading a recipe for chicken with grilled avocados. It had never occurred to me to heat an avocado. Warming them up a bit on the grill intensifies the flavor and, if possible, makes an avocado even better.
So, next time you think about making guacamole, consider grilling the avocados instead and using it in place of your favorite guacamole. I think you will be happily surprised.
Try it with Red Wine and Thyme Pork Tenderloin or take a tortilla chip and scoop the avocado right out of its shell.
