Avocado Chili Brownies topped with Avocado Tequila Ice Cream

Avocado chili brownies topped with avocado tequila ice cream. The rich dark fudge brownies have to be the moistest brownies I have ever had and I loved the mild spicy kick at the end. And the ice cream, holy mama, the addition of tequila in the creamy avocado ice cream released an agave flavor, which lingered on the tongue just long enough to recognize the agave fumes. The avocados gave the brownies a light and airy texture eliminating the denseness of a heavy brownie.

Notes

Check your avocado for ripeness! To do so peel back the small stem or cap at the top of the avocado. If it comes away easily and you find green underneath, you’ve got a good one. If you pull back the stem and find brown underneath, the avocado is overripe.
