    Yummy! Guacamoles are so great – start with fish tacos and guac dip. Then on to explore other great recipes and my fave would be just plain ol’ slice and eat.

    Guacamole of course!!

  3. Lynn — December 10, 2011 @ 11:29 am

    I love avocados on everything…omelets, burgers, tacos, BLT wrap with big chunks of avocado ……….

  4. Chris Young — December 10, 2011 @ 11:37 am

    Guacamole, guacamole and guacamole

  5. Kara — December 10, 2011 @ 1:12 pm

    Nothing beats fresh guacamole! I would also make a delicious turkey, bacon and avocado sandwich! :)

  6. RG — December 10, 2011 @ 1:30 pm

    I am expecting, due in four weeks. I am CRAVING guac, and can find nary an avacado in our town. This is so timely. Hope I win….

    I LOVE me some guacamole! What a great giveaway!

  8. Heidi — December 10, 2011 @ 4:43 pm

    I have been seriously craving some guacamole lately!

  9. Jess — December 10, 2011 @ 5:05 pm

    At least two eaten by themselves with salt. Then sandwiches. Then guac.

  10. emily — December 10, 2011 @ 5:54 pm

    I would make avocado-corn salad and breakfast tacos!

  11. Laura @ Gluten Free Pantry — December 10, 2011 @ 8:19 pm

    Oh I LOVE avocados! I would make a chocolate mousse with them and guac too :)

  12. Sarah @ pão e queijo — December 10, 2011 @ 8:20 pm

    I would add them to tortilla soup and tacos to feel like it’s summer again ;)

  13. Sarah @ pão e queijo — December 10, 2011 @ 8:22 pm

    I’m now following CA direct on Fb (as pão e queijo blog).

  15. Shae — December 11, 2011 @ 1:07 pm

    Mmm, I would definitely make a chicken salad sandwich on whole grain with a garlic and avocado spread. So delicious!

  16. Kari Routledge — December 11, 2011 @ 1:11 pm

    I would make homemade guacamole, strawberry/avocado salad, and of course save some to slice for grilled burgers!

  17. Kristen — December 11, 2011 @ 1:35 pm

    I would make an avocado cheesecake!

  18. Brenda — December 11, 2011 @ 3:13 pm

    I like them straight – would put them on salads and spread them on sandwiches in place of mayo. YUM.

  19. Debbie — December 11, 2011 @ 4:03 pm

    I’d make a bunch of guacamole & call our friends to come over for a taco party!

  20. Ellen Einkauf Photography — December 11, 2011 @ 5:42 pm

    I would make some delicious guacaole!!

  21. Melissa — December 11, 2011 @ 8:56 pm

    My little girl (she’s 2) and I both love avocados! Actually, while guacamole and other prepared avocado dishes are all delicious, I prefer to cut them in half, sprinkle some salt and pepper and just eat them with a spoon.

  22. Meagan N. — December 11, 2011 @ 10:59 pm

    I’d probably eat 1/2 of them as guacamole because I LOVE guacamole. I eat with a spoon. Then, I’d make a sandwich… turkey, bacon & avocado on focaccia (add sprouts, tomatoes, red onion, and a little mayo/mustard). Then, I’d make all sorts of Mexican inspired dishes. I’m getting hungry just thinking about it.

  23. Melody — December 12, 2011 @ 10:03 am

    Has to be one of my all time favorite foods! I can think of way more than 9 ways I’d eat those beauties. Sliced with salt and pepper, halfed with a scoop of chicken salad in the center, diced and served in a steaming bowl of tortilla soup, in a lovely garden salad with my homemade vinegeret, deep fried chunks in a beer batter, in enchiladas, marinated with cucumbers and red onions, guacamole, on an italian sub sandwiche, a caviar/sour cream/egg salad/guacamole layered and molded appetizer….I’d run out of the fruit before I’d run out of ideas.

  24. Susan — December 13, 2011 @ 1:08 pm

    What wouldn’t I make, I add avocado’s to almost everything. My favorite is to add them atop Huevos Rancheros. The creamy texture compliments the spicy sauce. mmm making me hungry just thinking about it. Plus my mom and myself love making avocado smoothies, at first we were a little skeptical but they are yummy.

  25. Barbara Belt — December 28, 2012 @ 7:13 am

    No matter how I eat them they are absolutely delicious. Since I moved to the northwest have had the pleasure of enjoying them every week at shopping time. Love your blog. Keep up the great job of interesting recipes and sharing.

  26. Debby S. — March 11, 2015 @ 10:17 pm

    Definitely some avocado toast and BLAT (bacon, lettuce, tomato on toast). My 4-year-old granddaughter will probably devour them sliced with a bit of salt.
