Avocados on Game Day--not a want, rather, a necessity. A delicious, delicious NECESSITY.

In fact, it's expected that Big Game partiers will consume over 139 MILLION pounds of fresh avocados during the week's festivities! That's a lot of necessity.

But with great avocados comes great responsibility, and even greater possibility, so just how do you plan on eating yours? Sure, you could mash 'em up into guacamole and chip-n-dip to your heart's content, but after checking out the recipes below, you're going to rethink every avocado you've ever laid eyes on.

Here are three unexpected yet totally Game Day appropriate ways to eat up those pretty green babies.

What's a potato? These fries from Josh Scherer (Culinary Brodown) are made from 100% pure avocado and loaded with marinated carne asada, refried beans, Mexican crema and queso fresco, and a 'liberal squirting of Sriracha.' I'll take twenty.

With Josh Elkin's recipe for Avocado and Bacon Deviled Eggs on the playing field, the Easter Bunny's definitely getting a run for his money--sorry, man, we prefer our eggs to be filled with creamy avocado and bacon-infused yolks, not expired Tootsie rolls.

These insane Avocado Frito Pie Bombs from Amy Erickson (Oh Bite It) are lethal, but in the best possible way--exploding with flavors of baked avocado, chili cheese, and Frito chips, they're dangerously delicious.
