An avocado recipe from Ang

I haven't tried this yet but it sounds so good!

Grilled Avocados

1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp lime juice
2 large ripe avocados, halved, seeded, and peeled
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1/4 cup bottled picante sauce
1 oz Monterey Jack or farmer cheese (shredded or crumbled 1/4 cup)
Snipped fresh cilantro
Salad greens (optional)
Sour Cream (optional)

1. Stir together olive oil and lime juice. Brush avocados all over with olive oil mixture. Sprinkle cut sides of avocados with salt.
2. For a charcoal grill, grill avocado halves, cut side down, on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 5 minutes or until browned. Turn avocado halves, cut side up. Fill centers of avocado halves with the 1/4 cup picante sauce and shredded cheese. Cover grill and grill about 5 minutes more or until cheese begins to melt.
3. Remove avocados from grill. Sprinkle tops of avocado halves with snipped cilantro. If desired, serve on bed of salad greens with picante sauce and sour cream.
