The Spicy Avocado Spread is bursting with flavor, but if time is short, use prepared guacamole or a few slices of fresh avocado to still enjoy the benefits of the avocado's healthful plant fats. Serve with baked potato chips. If you prefer your bun toasted, place it on the grill during the last minute of cooking.
