Grilled Avocados with Sausage Salsa

What I did:

Browned 1 1/2 lbs sausage

In blenderish thing I chopped up:
About 7 medium tomatoes
5 or 6 medium peppers from Costco's mixed bag
A medium or so onion (I used yellow)
About a half head of garlic
3 smallish peaches

Once I had it all chopped up, I put it in a bowl and added various spices to taste.

1. I turned on the grill and sideburner to medium (300 to 350)
2. Cut the avocados (Not too hard or soft - better harder than softer) in half and take out the pit
3. With the salsa heating up on the burner, put the avocado halves face-down on the grill
4. Close and let cook for about 8 minutes or so, checking to make sure they aren't burning
5. Once they seem heated through good, if they don't have some char lines, move them over the searing plate of other open flame area for a minute or so
6. You can carefully scoop the avocado off the peeling, or you can wait - your preference
7. Take them off and spoon the salsa into them
8. Top with shredded cheese
9. You'll want more of the salsa than fits in the pit area - there will be plenty for that
10. One avocado (2 halves) will be plenty per person, trust me. It's filling enough
