(ingredients: cream cheese, avocado, garlic salt, lime juice, diced roma tomato)
However, avocados really don't need to be made into guacamole. They are delicious on their own. I have been known to cut an avocado in half and use a spoon to dig the fruit right out of the skin and into my mouth. Plain. No salt, no lime juice, no tomato. Just pure, delicious, avocado. Sometimes I spread it on my homemade bread. Sometimes I scoop it out of the skin with a corn chip. Sometimes I dice it up on a salad, or in my pasta dish. Sometimes I use it as a sandwich spread. I even made avocado bread one time. (although, I will admit, it just tasted like...bread.) Sooooo many delicious choices.
And besides tasting good...avocados are a great source of potassium. And, as a runner, I can always use more potassium. :)
in a pasta dish (this one is my "chicken-avocado-pasta delight"
(also very good with shrimp pasta)
on top of a salad (spinach, carrot, tomato, avocado)
or, tonights avocado-preparation of choice: on top of tortilla chips w/fresh diced tomato
