    This is a thread to share your love of Avocado. Living in California, avocado makes its way into a lot of local cuisine. I've actually had more exposure to avocado in Mexican food up here in NorCal than when I lived in SoCal. I'm a BIG fan, its a wonderful addition to sandwiches, tacos and burritos.

    Mmmmmm, here in the UK avocado isn't all that common, but it is a very nice international jet-setting fruit

    Ever since I tried it on eggs and learned how to make healthy guacamole, it's maintained a fairly regular presence at our meals.

    Avocado on toast with salt, pepper and a little lime juice. Outstanding.

    "healthy guacamole?" Is there an unhealthy variation?

    Avocado is fantastic. I approve.

    it's the pit. Goes for most pit foods. Not that you'd waste good avo on dog food.

    Some people add sour cream to it.

    We do not use sour cream in ours.

    Avocados are delicious, I like to add them to quesadillas and some soups too.

    ah, sour cream. This probably belongs in the unpopular opinions thread, but to my taste buds, sour cream ruins anything it touches. Guac wit sc sounds awful.

    I use yogurt, creme fraiche, sour cream, buttermilk, or none of the above, depending on what's handy. My wife sometimes makes all of those with locally bought unprocessed milk, FWIW.

    I grew up on an avocado orchard. So naturally, I can't stand it :)

    There is a whole list of foods dogs shouldn't eat. I'll look for mine and forward.

    I love avacacos too. I can eat one by itself. Hass is my favorite variety. Used to pick them from a neighbors tree when I was a kid in Long Beach.
