16 things you can do with an avacado.

Guacamole. Originated in Mexico (duh!), guacamole is pure genius! This recipe from Simply Recipes uses peppers and even suggests some cottage cheese, which seems kind of weird to me, but could be interesting. Pair with tortilla chips -- and a margarita!

Avocado salad. Avocado salad sounds good but avocado and shrimp salad sounds even better.

Avocado soup. There are dozens of ways to make avocado soup, but this one from The Food Network with a crab relish sounds delish.

Avocado smoothie. I've never tried an avocado smoothie before, but this one from Bon Appetit sounds like a healthy milkshake.

Avocado mashed potatoes. I love to throw interesting things into mashed potatoes (olives are a fave) so mashed potatoes with avocado sounds perfect. This recipe is low fat and low cal. Personally, I'd toss in some sauteed garlic.

Avocado stuffed red peppers. Avocados make a great stuffer and this recipe is easy and healthy.

Got any good avocado recipes?

It's a good make-up remover!

Avacado pie is easy. Puree two ripe avacados and 1/2 cup of lemon juice in a blender. Add 1 can sweetened condensed milk and blend until smooth. Pour into a premade graham crumb crust andchill 1 hour before serving. Top with whipped cream.
