What an interesting combination of flavors. I substituted hazelnuts for the almonds and thought they compliment the avocado and cheeses nicely.

These were impressive! What a great combination of flavors and textures and pretty too. I did add 2 Tbsp. of finely chopped red bell pepper for color and the 3 garlic cloves other raters suggested. I also used a mixture of roasted and salted cashews, brazil nuts and almonds for the nuts. Great trecipe mariposa13. I'll be making these many times and have already shared your recipe.
