How To Use An Avocado in recipes

Updated on November 10, 2011

The avocado, a fruit from Latin American countries, has become a
staple ingredient in most foods here in America, but what exactly
compliments the great avocado. Well for starters, you mist first know
what an avocado
Looks like, it's outer layer dominated by a thin black shell and it's
insides comprised of a thick green meat that gets softer as it ripens
and goes brow. When spoiled. To make us of it's high nutrition,
protein dominated, you must use a small knife to carve away it's
shell, and with the same knife cut into the put inside and with a
twist remove it from it's prison.

Now you have your avocado meat, but what now? The traditional avocado
Latin America is used for various tacos, enchiladas, pastas,
quesadilla, and guacamole for nachos. Here is a small recipe for
guacamole, a mixtures of various vegetables and avocado that make a
heavy dip for ant occasion.

The Baker's Guacamole
( Serves 10 people )

10 Avocados (diced)
30 cherry tomatoes (sliced)
1 1/2 white onion (diced)
1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
1 carrot (grated)
4 oz asiago cheese (grated)
2 oz white ground pepper
3 oz sea salt
4 oz jalapeƱo hot sauce
1 lime (squeezed)

Fold all these ingredients on together as to prevent the avocado
chunks from crumbling apart...enjoy.

Now that you have a basic recipe for avocado, what do you use this
with? If you don't want to use this in a traditional form, put some
of this dip on top of a hamburger, or with Your breakfast to
compliment your eggs. If your a pasta lover, then use a portion over
your noodles, or a simple fresh vegetable dipping sauce, your choice,
but just remember that an avocado could just possibly change your
life, I believe it's that good.

      Yes, great in salads. Wow, $2.49? Do you have an Aldi store around, saddlerider? The most I ever pay is 99 cents, but they're often 79 or 69 cents, sometimes even 59 cents or less. When they are that cheap, I take advantage of them! At $2.49, this guacamole recipe would be way too expensive! Gotta find them on sale! :-)

      I like to take an Avocado, slice it in 2, take a knife and cut about 3 cuts length wise and 3-6 width wise. I then scoop it out onto my plate or over a mainly cucumber salad and put some sweet dressing over the mixture and experience utter delight.
