Try it on tortilla soup or any Mexican dish. It's wonderful sliced over tacos, chalupas and enchiladas.

About a hundred years ago when our children were very young (she had 2 boys under 2 yrs) my neighbor came over to my house with an avacado and asked if she could just sit and eat it without being asked for a bite! I tried to tell my son they tasted terrible but it didn't work - he loves every kind of food!

How about slice on about any sandwich?

I buy them at Fred Meyer for about $2.29 per avocado if they're ripe, I think they're around $3.50 if they're not ripe....sorry about that, I wasn't sure quite what you were asking

Ah, I love avocados.
At home we usually put them in vegetable and pasta bakes. Or make avocado melts, taking it out of the shell and mixing it up with a few other veggies and then putting the mixture into the shell with some grated cheese on top and into the oven quickly to melt the cheese.

And you could easily add chicken or something into both.

other than the typical lime juice and salt, another Fave of mine is mashed in with potatoe and spring onions and bacon bits.

make sure the potatoes are Really Dry though, the Avocado gives it`s own moisture when it`s baked.

well actually, i made a nice guacamole with my king crab last night. I had corn chips, then made a dip with half an avocado, a dollop of mayo, salsa, and balsamic vinegar...it was a fine dip

I usually mash mine with paprika & a little black pepper and eat it on toast.

On another tack, I once had avocado baked with a crab stuffing.

Last month, I ordered a great salad that was new on the menu of a local restaurant. The salad included grilled, shrimp and grilled pineapple slices (fresh) as well as two avocado halves (skins still on) that were brushed with pineapple juice and also grilled. Everything was served on a bed of baby greens with an orange/olive oil dressing. It was the first time I had ever had (or even heard of) a grilled avocado. DELICIOUS!!!!
My friend makes avocado milkshakes. She puts peeled avocado slices into the blender, adds one to two scoops of vanilla ice cream, and sometimes a little ice and milk. It turns into a thick shake with a pale green color and tastes wonderful!!
