    Disappointed in this recipe, but has potential. The spice mix is good and it is easy and quick to prep. Next time I would not grill the avocado or mix with lime juice. I think the spices need the unadulterated buttery-ness flavor of raw, ripe avocado. Also served with a bit of low-fat cheddar

    Simply fabulous recipe. My husband adored these, and the blackened chicken rub is outstanding. I thought the grilled avocado made this recipe - such a rich and creamy texture and taste. Will definitely make again and would be a great summer recipe for company.

    My husband absolutely loves these tacos, and requests them often. The spice blend is tasty, and the meal comes together quite quickly. Grilling the avocado slices is a nice touch, but isn't necessary for a delicious final product. I typically serve these tacos with whole wheat tortillas and 2% Greek yogurt - which is an excellent stand-in for sour cream.

    Yum! The spice mix is really, really tasty and I will definitely make this again. A couple of modifications: I barbecued the chicken and avocado, and the avocado was in quarters that I squeezed half a lime over and let sit for 5 mins before grilling. The avocado got sliced after grilling along with the chicken. I also grilled the tortillas to heat them since the grill was already on (I recommend it!). The grilled avocado was still creamy and a bit smokey with a subtle lime flavour. I served these with garlic-lime refried beans.

    These were delicious and so easy to make. I put together the rub ahead of time in a ziploc freezer bag and just tossed the chicken in before cooking. I was the first chicken I'd ever blackened and was absolutely delicious! I bought the thin sliced chicken breast to be sure they cooked all the way through. Grilling the avocado brought out another level of flavor which just added to the meal. I would make it again!

    The chicken was very good, I used hot paprika and used black pepper instead of cayenne. I prefer raw avocados to the grilled ones for this recipe. I will make again for my family.
