Rated 5 out of 5 by Alixa from Delicious and uses leftovers! Loved the flavors and that it can be served cold or hot. Also love that it's a dish I can make with excess ingredients that otherwise would have gone to waste: 2 small avocados, creme fraiche (substituted for yogurt), and leftover chicken stock (used Kirkland organic brand). I used Tapatio hot sauce. It was so good I didn't even make the relish. I'm always trying to get more avocados and beans in my diet so this is a perfect way to do that!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SFskies from Classic Southwestern / Mexican Flavors This is guacamole on a bean quesadilla, but without the fried tortilla. The cook who originated it must have tested it to get the proportions just right. It's best with the relish. The relish is tolerant enough that you can still leave out an ingredient or two.
