Chilled Avocado Soup with Crab

Guacamole is so much more than a dip for your chip. Here are nine ways to use it that go far beyond standard Mexican fare.

1. On toast. Avocado toast has become an Instagram cliché. Guacamole toast? Not so much. Serve with sprouts, slices of tomato, and hard-boiled egg for a breakfast so satisfying, you might not need to eat again until dinner.

2. On a sandwich. Whether you're filling bread with turkey, tuna salad, or BLandT, use guac in place of mayo. And yes, you should put tortilla chips on the sandwich.

3. Soup. Puree guacamole to make a refreshing avocado soup, or use guacamole as a garnish for other smooth soups.

4. Deviled eggs. Garnish standard deviled eggs with a spoonful of guacamole, or skip the usual mayo-mustard and blend the egg yolks with the guacamole.

5. Salad dressing. Puree the guacamole with lime juice, water, and oil to make a creamy dressing for a wedge salad.

6. Loaded potatoes. Who needs sour cream on baked potatoes when you have guacamole? Of course, there's no reason you can't put both on top.

7. With fried fish. Use it as a tartar sauce stand-in with fried fish and crab cakes.

8. With vegetable patties. Everything from latkes to zucchini fritters can be improved with a dollop of guac.

9. With smoked salmon. Top crispy sushi–rice cakes with smoked salmon and guacamole or spread it directly on the salmon with cream cheese and roll it up.
