Grilled guacamole

<b>Grilled guacamole</b><br>
<br>
Prep: 15 minutes<br>
Cook: 8-10 minutes<br>
Servings: 4<br>
<br>
<b>Ingredients:</b><br>
4 Hass avocados, ripe but not squishy<br>
Olive oil<br>
1/2 lime<br>
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt<br>
Freshly ground pepper<br>
1 to 2 cloves garlic, minced, optional<br>
1/4 red onion, finely chopped, optional<br>
1/3 cup finely chopped cilantro, optional<br>
<br>
1. Heat a gas or charcoal grill for low heat; oil the grate lightly. Split each avocado skin with a sharp knife, just piercing the skin. Peel the skin away, leaving the avocado whole. Cut the avocado in half lengthwise; remove and discard the pit. Lightly brush each avocado half with olive oil.<br>
<br>
2. Arrange the avocado halves on the grill; cover. Grill, 5 minutes. Flip; cover and grill until the avocados are heated through and have grill marks, a few minutes more. (Keep an eye on them; depending on your grill it could take less or more time.)<br>
<br>
3. Remove avocados from grill; let them cool slightly. Smash them with a fork in a bowl; stir in the lime juice, salt and pepper to taste. Add garlic, onion and cilantro, if you wish. Serve with tortilla chips.<br>
