Title: Avocados with Chipotle and Lime
Categories: Avocados, Cookbook, Salads and
Yield: 4 Servings

1 Avocado
3 tb Chipotle Hot Sauce; at room
-temperature, or canned
-chipotle chiles in adobo
-sauce
1 tb Warm water
1 tb Sundried tomatoes; (oil
-packed) drained and chopped
1 Lime

Skin the avocado, cut it in half lengthwise, and remove the pit. Slice the
halves lengthwise into 6 to 10 thin slices, and fan them out on small
plates (3 to 5 slices per serving).

Combine the chipotle sauce, water, and sundried tomatoes in a blender, and
puree. Spoon a fine, decorative line across the fanned avocado slices. Cut
the lime in half. Squeeze a bit of juice from one half of the lime over the
top of each fan; cut the other half into 4 thin slices. Garnish the plates
with lime slices and serve.

Note: Avocado should be ripe, creamy, and of the Haas variety (the nubbly
black avocados, not smooth the green-skinned ones, which can be watery). A
delicate, deep red line of hot sauce painted across the avocado is visually
dramatic, and the spiciness accentuates the avocado’s cool smoothness. This
dish makes an elegant and very easy first course for a dinner party.
