Grilled Stuffed Avocados

Grilled avocado with pulled pork, salsa and cheese! -

I love avocados but my experience is limited to making guacamole with grilled corn or using avocados as a burger topping. I've heard some chatter on the web about grilling them so I had to give it a try. What I learned from this is that when you grill an avocado correctly, it turns into a warm and tender base for a variety of toppings. A normal avocado is soft, but a grilled one almost has a pudding like consistency. It's magical! I had a bunch of leftover pulled pork so I decided to make a stuffed grilled avocado with pulled pork, spicy salsa and shredded cheese. It was fantastic!

First wash off your avocado and slice it in half. Remove the big seed and gather your remaining ingredients. Light the grill for medium heat.

My method for grilling an avocado is to grill it face down (the edible part down) directly on the grates for 5 minutes, then flip them over, stuff them, and continue grilling them (skin side down) for another 15 minutes until the inside of the avocado is soft and hot and the cheese is melted.

Over medium heat, 5 minutes isn't that long and shouldn't burn the avocado. If you're lucky you'll get a few nice grill marks but it doesn't really matter as you'll be adding toppings.

Stuff the avocados and keep them over direct heat for another 15 or so minutes. It's ok if the skin of the avocado burns a little, as you won't be eating that part!

This was a fantastic appetizer that I think would work well for a tailgate. I've also enjoyed doing this as a side dish for a big steak.
