I wasn't always a fan of avocados. At Mexican restaurants, I was known to shove the "green slime" to the farthest corner of my plate.
That all changed with my first stuffed avocado from Trudy's restaurant in Austin. Since that first bite, I've been an avocado fiend. I use them in everything from sandwiches to salads. I even created a dish incorporating the beloved avocado into a stir fry. Surprisingly, though, I had never I made fresh guacamole until tonight. This guac was phenomenal- even by itself!
