People in Vietnam often blend avocado and sweetened condensed milk for smoothies, but the fruit is also terrific as a rich, fatty accessory in banh mi (the Vietnamese word for avocado is trai bo, "butter fruit"). You'll see it often with grilled chicken and mint—though you can also use leftover roast chicken—and either chile sauce or fresh chile slices.
