    Default Avocados

    We went grocery shopping yesterday, and I decided to treat myself to
    an avocado. I changed my mind when I saw that they were $1.98 each!

    Here's a cool-looking recipe using avocados:

    Avos are $90 cents at the produce market recently. They're the Hass Mexican
    import, here in PA.

    Carol,

    I'll pass on your recipe. Grossed me out, to tell you the truth.

    Why not a nice avo grilled cheese sandwich instead? Simple perfection.

    Went to a different store today, and found them for $.89 each. I
    bought six of them, in varying degrees of ripeness. Heaven!

    Well, when you find them less expensive, here's an oldie but goodie.
    I have it categorized as one of those "now why didn't I think of
    that?" recipes.

    Orange Avocado

    1 orange (about 1/2 lb.)
    1 ripe avocado (about 10 oz.)
    2 tablespoons lime juice
    1/2 cup chopped green onions
    1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
    Hot chili flakes
    Salt

    1. Cut and discard peel and white membrane from orange. Cut between
    segments to release fruit. Cut fruit into 1/2-inch chunks and put in a
    bowl.

    2. Peel and pit avocado. Cut into 1/2-inch chunks and mix with orange
    chunks. Stir in lime juice, onions, and cilantro. Add chili flakes and
    salt to taste.

    I bought two the other day for $1.98 each and made some damn good dip!
    Well worth the $4. Shared it with 4 friends who loved it as well!

    Thank you! That sounds delicious. Now I have the (much cheaper)
    avocados, but not the rest of the stuff. LOL! I'll try to grab the
    other components next week, when we go grocery shopping.
