1Good avocados (I presume, for guacamole?) need no garlic.
Just FYI; the Pátzcuaro Mercado yesterday had decent avocados, ranging from 8 pesos to 11 pesos a kilo, the lowest I can recall seeing in my distant memory. That's 63-86 US Cents per kg.

2I never put garlic in guacamole. The real crisis would be no chiles.
Avocados, chiles, lime juice (lemon in a pinch), chopped tomato and a bit of salt.
The football super bowl in Sunday and that is traditionally a huge time for avocado sales.(The absolute biggest is Cinco de Mayo). The stores have them all displayed next to piles of lemons & limes, as well as onions & cilantro. The Avocado Commission figures about 70 million avocados will be sold this week.
While looking for that avocado statistic, I found this. I'm not sure I'll give it a try:Chocolate avocado frosting.. The blog starts out "You can read the title all you want…it’s not going to change. No matter how many times you blink, this is going to remain a recipe for chocolate avocado frosting."
Then I found Avocado Crème Brûlée

5Rosa Mexicano makes a big deal of their guacamole, prepared at tablesde. They do't use garlic. I prefer it with.
But I'm happy with what Fieldgate proposes. I would splash some sriracha on it, but I splash sriracha on everything these days.

7According to reliable internet sources sriracha originates in Thailand and is known as "cock sauce", at least in the US.

12Avocados in my town are $NZ3 each but in the North Island of New Zealand are 10 for $5.
Being a luxury item even in the height of the hottest summer in years, I would not let the lack of garlic hold me back if they were at their optimum ripeness. The lack of lemon/lime or salt would be a serious issue though.

14Chilled ripe avocado halves,seeds removed,and infilled with a sprinkling finely diced shallots/onions,salmon roe/caviar and a twist of fresh lemon/lime juice and a few drops of Worchester sauce,s&p, makes a quick and easy appitizer.
