    The idea is amazing, but mine just didn't hold. I am new to cooking so I may have messed this up, but the coating was just bland and clumpy and didn't brown. However, I changed the toppings ...

    I didn't use the taco sauce, which was a mistake. The idea of these tacos sounds great, but they were pretty bland.

    Loved the baked avocado idea, but as a whole, these didn't make the favorites list.

    I followed your recipe exact and the avocado didn't brown up and really felt this recipe needs some work.

    OH YUM! First I have to say that I am absolute fan of the avocado being cook this way. It was soooo good that I could've just eaten it like that w/ a dipping sauce, lol. Ok, back to the taco ...
