    Avocados are one of my favorite things. I can't believe I hated them when I was little, I missed out on so many years! Guess I'll have to eat as many as possible now to make up for it... This is a great way to do it! ~Cheryl
  2. Wow, I would use these as a main dish for lunch! Amazing! I'm heading to my neighbor's avocado tree and snag a few! I do have a question..... what's the purpose of baking the avocados first? I understand the broiling to melt the cheese, but what does it do for the avocado to bake it first? Does it make it softer? Just wondering? As always, thank you for posting the most amazing recipes!
