Avocado "Zingers"

The name may be really strange, and perhaps a bit cheesy, but I concocted these little party bites for a New Year’s party, and they were a hit! The recipe is fast, simple and excitingly delicious:

2 ripe avocados
2 ripe oranges
A few dashes of Tabasco sauce (I used the new garlic variety but you can use any kind you'd like)

Cut avocados and oranges into cubes, and join one piece of each on a toothpick. Put a dash of Tabasco on each duo, and voilà! They’re done. Serve them as soon as you make them so the avocadoes don’t turn a nasty brown.

It seemed like a strange idea at first, but the coolness and creaminess of the avocado, coupled with the citrus of the orange tempered the fiery kick of the Tabasco to create an exotic and tingling combination of flavors on the palate. Try it out!
