Question:  Do you have any interesting recipes for avocadoes that are not just guacamole?

Answer:  The avocado is power-packed with more than 20 essential nutrients, including fiber, potassium, Vitamin E and folic acid. They are also packed with fat, but at least it’s the good kind. A really good, buttery avocado doesn’t need much adornment, but I do like this Blue Cheese Avocado Dip recipe a friend gave to me years ago.  Just combine 2 tablespoons chopped white onion and 2 ripe avocadoes with 2 tsp fresh lemon juice, 1 ½ cups sour cream and ¼ cup blue cheese. Puree it all together and add salt and pepper to taste. Chill for one hour before serving with Fritos or raw vegetables.
