    Manami's Note:

    Recipe created by chefs Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feninger (The Too Hot Tamales) for the California Avocado Commission.We found these sandwiches very exciting and delicious! Since we use the grill year-round, we don't have to wait until summer. This would be a great weekend brunch or a nice evening meal - serve with a salad of sliced tomatoes with onions, maybe some type of starch and some nice cold beer or wine - depends on the occasion. :)
