Good Eats: Over 25 avocado recipes for when toast is not enough

You've probably done this — bought a bag of avocados that all ripened at the same time. Then, you had to make and eat a vat of guacamole before they all went bad. It's not the worst thing in the world, but then again, eating that much guac in one sitting could make you want to avoid it for weeks or even months. (The horror!)

Choosing a perfectly ripe avocado at the grocery store isn't exactly easy. It all comes down to the color and feel. The color of the skin should be dark, not exactly green. And when you gently squeeze the avocado, it should feel soft, but not mushy. 

Nonetheless, in the case that you have a load of ready-to-eat avocados on hand and can't bring yourself to spread it across another piece of toast, we've got you. Check out our favorite avocado recipes above, featuring salads, soups, sauces, sandwiches and yes, even dessert. 

Not sure what to do with the family-sized pack of chicken breasts you just bought? See our favorite chicken recipes below!
