you can serve them cut in half and filled with cooked shrimp and a
vinegarette or slice some on top of your chili. Stuff them with chicken
or tuna salad. Make an avocado salsa, can make a mango or papaya
salsa and include avocados. Good in a spinach salad with strawberries,
red onion and poppy seed dressing. uummm good

We love them with a little scoop of mayo in the hollow along with some salt and pepper and a little shot of lemon or lime juice ... all the other ideas sound so delicious, though, I'm going to have try them!

One of my favorite things and taste wonderful over everything. From pasta to anything mexican.

If you can't take the heat, then get out of the kitchen!!!

My mom & I used to share avocados when I was little. We'd cut them in half & put a little oil & vinegar in & scoop the flesh out with a spoon ! Yum.

Living in Mexico, I see lots of ways to use avocados....our favorite salsa verde is made with tomatillos, avocados, cilantro, a serrano chili, onions & water in a blender (all raw). I also love sopa de lima, Azteca sopa or in the States, tortilla soup with slices of avocado in it. Down here they also use avocados on club sandwiches, fish burgers & hamburgers in place of pickles. Most of the little taco stands just put slices of avocado on the tacos, salbutes, panochos, tostados, sopes, etc. instead of quacamole.

oh my, sorry guys, I didn't see all your replies, the forum has stopped forwarding the replies to my email box, so I didn't know people were replying to my thread. I REALLY like the Ideas from Clienta and JMediger, and for the more complex days I'll try BandonJan's method. And to answer mcgrew...as many avocados as I want to! :D
