Heat up your grill. Medium heat for a gas grill. For a charcoal grill, the chops will be over medium coals- 4 to 6 inches from the heat.
Get out a small bowl. Reserve 2 teaspoons of the taco mix and set it aside. Place the rest of the mix in a bowl, adding in 1 tablespoon of the lime juice and all the honey. Mix it together.
Brush this mixture on the pork chops, covering both sides. You may discard anything left over.
Set the pork chops on the grill, directly over the heat. Cook them 8 to 10 minutes, or until slightly pink in the middle of each chop. Turn them once or twice while grilling.
While they're grilling, get out a small bowl and mix the avocado, 2 teaspoons of seasoning mix, and the other 1 tablespoon lime juice. Mix till almost smooth.
Place the avocado mixture on top of the chops when ready to serve. Sprinkle cilantro over the top of everything.
