Guacamole may be served in the traditional way as a dip for tortilla chips, but it is also wonderful on grilled hamburgers, spooned into tomato shells, or spread on bacon and tomato sandwiches.

If you have leftover Guacamole, put it into the bottom of a salad bowl and thin it with a little Italian dressing to produce a fresh-tasting avocado dressing in seconds.

2 avocados, peeled, seeded, and sliced
2 garlic cloves, pressed
1 shallot, minced
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
Several drops of Tabasco sauce
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  1. Place the avocado slices on a large plate and mash them with a fork. (This method creates a consistency that is smooth yet texturally interesting.) 
  2. Blend in the garlic, shallot, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and Tabasco. 
  3. Mix in the chopped cilantro. 
  4. Transfer to a bowl and lay a sheet of plastic wrap directly on the surface to retard browning. 
  5. Refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours or until lightly chilled.
