Thanks, Dawg and Kay....I've given this recipe out to whoever will listen to me over the past couple of years and glad to share again. It's good with tortilla chips, wrapped in flour tortillas and cut into pinwheels, and just as is. And it holds up well for get togethers and potlucks, etc. Going to have to get the ingredients to make it again, now that the OP has reminded me.

I think I'm gonna go with yours! And try the others after for myself.. you can't go wrong with southwest salad! Might add some jicama for crunch!

I love avocado in my fish tacos. They're real quick and easy to make. Here's my favorite combo:

warmed tortilla - flour or corn - your choice
grilled fish - whatever you like or have on hand
shredded cabbage
avocado chunks
chipotle mayo
chopped fresh cilantro
good squeeze of fresh lime

I need your best recipes featuring avocado!

One of our favorite restaurants in Mexico makes an avocado pie that's wonderful. Don't know what's in it, but it has a smooth, creamy texture similar to key lime pie. It's a big seller.

And I would dig into that ice cream, Steve! And I love fish tacos with avo too.

We've made Thai curry that calls for avocado in it.

Ew! I couldn't imagine an avocado dessert being very nice at all.

I must say, MC, don't knock it till you try it! That was my first reaction before trying the avocado pie. Now I'm a convert, it's luscious. And it sells out every day!

Really? I must look up a recipe and see.


EDIT: Is it the recipe with condensed milk and cream that the poster says is often mistaken for key lime pie?

I'd try the avocado pie for sure, and the avocado ice cream. It's not like it's pure avocado in either one, there are sweeteners added.

Garlic ice cream is pretty popular up in Gilroy. That sounds unusual too, but people like it or they wouldn't keep making it at the festivals.

Dawg, I looked up avocado pie on allrecipes. This sounds pretty good to me.
