Just don't taste off the stir spoon and then use the same spoon to continue stirring ; like Paula did in her video of this on food network.

This is out of this world! I recently served it & EVERYONE wanted the recipe. I even prepared some without the avacado because one of my guests is allergic to it. After one bite, she wanted the container and a spoon!
