I have just been give four avocados. What are some "quick" recipes for using them? Thanks for any help.
By Elayne from Dalhousie, Nova Scotia
# 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
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.
I use avocados in a lot of recipes! Here are my two most favorite:
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 avocado, seeded, skin removed and diced
1/3 cup cilantro, chopped
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp minced garlic
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
2 tbsp fresh lime juice
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
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
2 lettuce leaves
1 medium tomato, thinly sliced
1 medium to large ripe avocado, seeded, peeled and thinly sliced
Spread cream cheese over one side of each tortilla and equally sprinkle with parmesan, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Top with lettuce, tomato and avocado. Roll up and serve.
