2. Black Bean Avocado Salad Dip – It’s called “salad dip” because we couldn’t decide whether it was born to be eaten with a fork or with chips. Either way, it’s amazingly delish and always the first thing to disappear at parties.

3Avocado Hummus – This is the closest we got to guac without actually going there in this roundup. Hummus is already a fantastic snack, but when you make it avocado hummus, it’s doubly good.

    That’s a good idea to pair avocado with chocolate to make the bread loaf. That’s a good way to get the kids who aren’t fond of the fruit, to eat it willingly.
