Excellent. The flavor from roasted garlic and creamy avocado was just delicious. I oven roasted garlic instead of pan, and we served it with some Mexican fresh cheese, some bacon bits, sun-flower seeds, and homemade tortilla chips. It didn't last long, after we shot the photos, we finished up everything within 10 minutes. Hmm, will be making this again soon for sure.
