Guacamole

Ingredients:

# 1 large ripe avocado

# 1 tablespoon mayonnaise (NOT Miracle Whip)

# 1 teaspoon lime juice

# 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

# 5 -6 drops hot pepper sauce

# 1/4-1/2 teaspoon coarse ground garlic salt

Directions:

Prep Time: 3 mins

Total Time: 3 mins

1. Slice avocado lengthwise; remove pit and scoop avocado into a small bowl; add mayonnaise, lime juice, worcestershire sauce, hot pepper sauce, and salt; stir and mash the ingredients together (chunky guacamole takes less stirring and mashing while creamier guacamole takes more) until guacamole is preferred consistency; serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate if desired.

2. NOTE: Lemon juice may be substituted for the lime juice ~ You'll still get yummy guacamole!

California Grilled Chicken

Marinate chicken breasts in some Italian Dressing, brown one side , turn over and place your avocado slices on the chicken. Place a slice of your favorite cheese over the avocado...Swiss or Jalapeno Jack. Turn heat down, add 1/4 cup water to pan and cover for 5 minutes or till done. (Keep an eye on how much water is is pan). Tender, flavorful and a wonderful way to use avocado.

This is tasty served over almost any type of white fish, as a condiment for tacos or just about anything your heart might desire.

1/3 cup cilantro, chopped

1/2 tsp salt

1 tbsp red wine vinegar

2 tbsp fresh lime juice

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Directions:

Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.

Seasoned Tomato and Avocado Wraps

2 tortillas (10 inch)

Cream Cheese to taste

2 tbsp Parmesan cheese, shredded

1/4 tsp garlic powder

Salt and pepper to taste
