    Followed the recipe exactly. But there was hardly any avocado taste or pepper. Next time I'm going to try 3 avocados, 3 cheese blend and more seasoning. And calling the paste a "sauce" is stretching it a bit as it never turned into a "sauce". And it needs to be a creamier paste. I eliminated the bread crumbs altogether because it was too much starch in a dish that's already all starch. It was a bland dish.  -  26 Nov 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
