My husband just recently visited a little Mexican Restaurant in Angleton TX, La Casona and tried a wonderful dish...Stuffed and Batter Fried Avocado's They were to die for...They stuffed theirs with beef, beans, and cheese then battered and fried...They took both halves and put them back together with everything in between...
I am making mine as a half because they are so rich...and made with carne adovada and cheese dipped in rellano batter....I don't have a picture as of yet though.....
