anaheim pepper and avocado sandwich spread

anaheim peppers are much milder than jalapenos, but they do lend a

little bite and crunch to a layer of avocado in a sandwich.
i don't like sliced avocado in a sandwich. avocado slices are slippery, and more

likely to end up in your lap than staying put in the sandwich or burger. i slice the avocado in half, remove the pit, and slice criss-crosses into the avocado flesh. then i invert the shell and pop out the goods, into a bowl with a diced anaheim pepper and the juice of a couple of key limes. (all this photographed produce is from super saver.) i mash the mixture together lightly, just to blend, leaving chunks of avocado for flavor balance.

onion bun from le quartier.
if anyone can guess why i call this the ferragamo spread, post it in the comments. i'll send the first correct response a 5x7 of this lovely burger.

Because the spread is green, like the hulk, and the name is to honor the actor who played the hulk: lou ferragamo.

you're a big fan of ex-Husker Vince Ferragamo whose name is often confused a lot with Lou Ferrigno who played The Hulk.
Lou turned green and Vince wore green during his pro career.

Thank you Lynda!!

We'll be gathering these ingredients up for a meal this week. I'll have to see if I can find some wine from the Vince Ferragamo Winery to go with it!
