3 Minute Guacamole!

Avocados are best eaten raw in salads and dips as they turn bitter if they are cooked. The only place I have seen Avocados as part of a cooked dish was in Mexico where they are sliced and added to chicken soup before serving, but even then, he Avocados themselves were not cooked. Guacamole is very popular in Mexican and Southwestern cuisines. This tasty version takes only 3 minutes to make! (Taken from page 137 of the 2nd edition of the World's Healthiest Foods book.)
