9 Amazing And Unexpected Ways To Make Avocados Even More Delicious

Learn how to make the perfect guacamole, remix your guacamole with Asian flavors, and bread avocado wedges for super tasty tacos.posted about 3 hours ago

1. Roberto Santibañez' Classic Guacamole

Roberto Santibañez' Classic Guacamole

If you thought guacamole was just an easy party appetizer, think again. Avocado aficionados swear by authentic recipes that leave the finished product less crushed than we’re used to and more like a dressed avocado salad. You’re still free to use as many tortilla chips as you like.

Makes about 1 ¾ cups

2 tablespoons finely chopped white onion
1 tablespoon minced fresh serrano or jalapeno chile, including seeds, or more to taste
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 cup chopped cilantro, divided
1 large or 2 small ripe Mexican Hass avocados, halved and pitted
A squeeze of lime, if desired

Mash the onion, chile, salt (the coarseness of kosher salt helps you make the paste), and half of the cilantro to a paste in a molcajete or other mortar. You can also mince and mash the ingredients together on a cutting board with a large knife or a fork, and then transfer the paste to a bowl.

Score the flesh in the avocado halves in a crosshatch pattern (not through the skin) with a knife and then scoop it with a spoon into the mortar or bowl. Toss well, then add the rest of the cilantro and mash very coarsely with a pestle or a fork. Season to taste with lime juice (if you'd like) and additional chile and salt.

2. Fried Avocado Tacos with Sesame and Lime

Fried Avocado Tacos with Sesame and Lime

Get the recipe!

Breaded avocado gets crispy on the outside, creamy on the inside, then is accented by pork-simmered pinto beans and drizzled with a cilantro crema. We like a heavy hand on the crema — it’s good enough to eat with a spoon.

3. Carrot Avocado Salad

This recipe is from Dan Kruger’s ABC Kitchen — if that doesn’t sway you, let the textural combination do the trick. The crunch of sesame seeds contrasts with sweet, yielding carrot and silky avocado.

4. Charred Corn and Avocado Salad with Lime, Chili and Tomato

Charred Corn and Avocado Salad with Lime, Chili and Tomato

Get the recipe!

You may be sick of summer’s heat, but surely you're not sick of its produce. Eat this simple salad as many times as you can before the season ends. With corn, avocado, and a healthy hit of herbs, it’s summer in a bowl.

5. Avocado Gelado

Ice cream without the cream? Believe it. Avocado takes over in this version of your favorite summer treat, imparting a creaminess just as rich as the real thing.

6. Patricia Wells' Zucchini Carpaccio with Avocado and Pistachios

Patricia Wells' Zucchini Carpaccio with Avocado and Pistachios

Get the recipe!

Pamper your surplus of squash in this zucchini carpaccio, studded with pistachios and layered with ripe avocado. You'll end up with extra lemon salt, so use it to your advantage: swirl it into buttered pasta, dust in on cooked greens, or sprinkle onto a chocolate cookie.

7. Avocado Y Huevos Caliente

Avocado Y Huevos Caliente

Get the recipe!

This showy take on Huevos Rancheros is perfect for a summer brunch. It’s light, easier than it looks, and wonderfully spiced up with cumin, jalapeño, and cilantro. Make a margarita to wash it down.

8. Avocado Chocolate Mousse

Avocado Chocolate Mousse

Get the recipe!

Fit your healthy fats into dessert, of all places. This easy-to-make chocolate mousse does a bang-up job at masquerading as the traditional, all-chocolate version. Or, looking for a dessert to serve to vegans? This is your dish — it’s totally egg- and dairy-free.

9. Bangkokamole

Bangkokamole

Get the recipe!

Keep your tastebuds on their toes and take your guac to Southeast Asia. The addition of lime, fish sauce, and ginger take this classic dip to a completely different flavor continent. You can (and should) still serve it with chips, but it’ll be a whole new guacamole experience.

How To Make Amazing Guacamole, Step By Step

Superbowl or no, this is going to change your Guacamole Game. And that's a very important game.posted on January 25, 2013 at 10:40am EST



Most guacamole recipes ask you to chop ingredients and mix them together.

Those recipes are fine. But this one is better.

Those recipes are fine. But this one is better.

It's from food52's list of "genius recipes," and it was created by chef Roberto Santibañez. In his native Mexico, the chef explains, there is an important textural aspect to guacamole that's gotten lost in many American versions. "We never really mush up the avocado," he says. Also — the ingredients are the same, but Santibañez handles them differently. With a mortar and pestle, or the side of a big knife, or even a fork, he first pulverizes chile, onion, cilantro, and salt into a bright green slurry or paste. That slurry gives the guac incredible depth and flavor. Then he gently folds in cubed avocado.

Once you've finely chopped the onion, the jalapeno, and the cilantro...
