This is a baked version, but in the time it takes to preheat and bake this, you could have eaten these already if you fried it. I don't fry much, but it takes only a 1/2" of oil (avocado oil is perfect) in a pan and it fries beautifully and quick. Use FIRM but ripe avocados. I add some chili powder rather than paprika. You MUST however add salt to the panic and add a bit more when done. Avocados need salt or it is bland. I have seen many dips on the internet using half the ingredients of this one. Suit yourself. But these are a great snack, healthy, and unique.

oops, a typo. Not "panic," meant to say PANKO.

The creamy avocado cilantro dipping sauce is worth checking out on its own - I could think of a ton of uses for this. It would make a great topping for a taco salad, a dip for fresh raw veggies, or even as a flavorful sandwich spread! I've made a lot of things that incorporate fresh avocado before, but have never tried it cooked before. I was really impressed!

I snack recipe that requires a lot of work. My oldest son has adopted a vegan lifestyle and this may be a recipe that he would enjoy. I know the dipping sauce is out because of the mayo but I know he would appreciate the new way of eating the avocado.

I know avocado is a healthy food and I attempt to incorporate it into our diets. This will be a good one when then avocado are plentiful and less expensive than they are right now.
