As if we needed another reason to love guacamole: A recent study found that compounds extracted from Hass avocados halted the growth of oral cancer cells by killing some and preventing precancerous cells from developing. The monounsaturated fat in avocados helps the body more readily absorb all the bioactive compounds they contain, which is why avocados are also linked to other types of cancer prevention. Not sure how to use avocados beyond whipping up some guacamole? Here’s an easy recipe:

Spicy Avocado Soup With Chipotle Peppers
In a large pan, heat a tablespoon of olive oil and sauté 1 cup of chopped red onion, 1 cup of chopped yellow bell pepper, and 2 medium garlic cloves. Add 2 1/2 cups of vegetable or chicken stock, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon cumin. Bring to a boil, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes. Transfer mixture to a food processor, add 2 large avocados, peeled and cubed, and 1 medium canned chipotle pepper, seeded and minced. Puree until smooth, adding more broth if needed and more chipotle to taste. Garnish with a generous dollop of sour cream, a handful of chopped fresh cilantro, and a squeeze of lime.
