    Fabulous recipe! If you love guacamole, then give this recipe a try. I would have never thought to grill an avocado before, but this really did give the guacamole a nice smoky taste! I cut the recipe in half and used minced garlic with a bit of kosher salt vs. garlic salt. I also added a bit of cumin and I loved the creaminess the sour cream added to this. Overall, a wonderful recipe especially served with warm tortilla chips!  -  09 Jul 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Made this for the Super Bowl yesterday and it was AWESOME!!! Put the avocados on the grill until they got some brownness and were soft and warm. Very tasty!!  -  07 Feb 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I have made this recipe 3 times now, it is awesome! Only difference I do is white onions not red, no jalapeno, and I use ro*tel original diced tomatoes and green chilies. I also grill up the avocados in a skillet on my stove with a little olive oil. It taste so good and I will continue to make this guacamole recipe for years.  -  17 Jul 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
