Ha! Pac, "I always thought "the Pope's nose" reference was Canadian, as I had never heard it at least not that I remembered until I met Mr. Bunny....hmmmm. The things you learn on DC!

That's what my mother and her side of the family called it. And that's what I call it

Let me see, Fi
Those are two avocado halves that were grilled, then flipped over and some corn & black bean salsa spooned in.

Some time back, I tried to find recipes that included cooked avocado. There just weren't any. I guess I should have just tossed them on the grill. Does the flesh get really soft when cooked? How does the flavor change? I read that cooking avo made it bitter.

This is the only way I have ever eaten avocado, so have nothing to compare it to. They don't taste bitter to me. Really, I don't think they have much taste at all.
The flesh does get soft. I brush with oil and maybe lemon or lime juice, sometimes nothing, and you can watch the skin changing color as they cook. Kind of like a thermometer rising the way the changing color creeps from the cut half on the grill towards the top of the avocado. They probably take a good 15 minutes or longer.
IMO it's all about the salsa inside but I do scoop the fruit.

I have heard an English friend refer to it as the parson's nose. Apparently in North Africa it is the sultan's nose.

There for a while it seemed all the Catholic popes' noses were long and came to a sharp point. That's why I thought my family called it that, being Catholic.
Who knew associating a chicken's butt with authority figures' noses was global?
