Thank goodness you saved it! You've got a treasure there
I'll have to move again to have one!

I grilled them and filled with a corn/black bean salsa.

Nope. Never made it and never saw it at a party to try.
All I know about guacamole is what I've seen in pictures

ETA: that looks delicious!

Damn ! You're missing out!

The bacon wrapped avocado seems simple to make too. I see it's just stuffed with cheese, wrapped in bacon and grilled! Maybe that can be avo no 3

I eat an avo each day =0) I love 'em!
I like them savory, as well as sweet (they sub out well in various cake/brownie recipes)

I do the deviled egg thing too, Katie =0) I mash the yoke with avo, fresh dill, plain greek yogurt and pink salt.
I wanted to post a photo, but it won't take my url from either twitter or pinterest :(

Too expensive out of season so I just have them when they're seasonal.

Love avocado . Guacamole is a favourite, although I did make a chocolate mousse with one recently and it was lovely .

oh that is a bummer!
Ours are seasonal, but it's just different varieties at different times.
My favorite are Reed, which are in the fall. They are HUGE! and really buttery.

BTW, did you know you can freeze the fruit as a mash?

Snip, I wish you could come here next fall. Every year we go to an Avocado Festival near here and avocado's are celebrated like you wouldn't believe! I've sampled everything from avocado ice cream to pie. Here's a recipe from the festival that I use often and it's delicious.

AVOCADO SALAD DRESSING

1 large avocado peeled, mashed
1/2 c. sour cream
1/4 c. milk
1/4 c. mayonnaise
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1/4 tsp.garlic powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. fresh ground pepper

2-3 drops hot sauce
Mix together and refrigerate several hours to blend flavors.
