"fix" an unripe avocado?

so after falling in love with the avocado chicken salad recipe posted here last week, i was set on making it for my boyfriend this weekend, only to find no ripe avocados in any of our local stores. remembering that a not-quite ripe avocado still made an ok quacamole after being smushed in a food processor, i endeavored to try the salad with one as well. the salad was still good, but the chewy chunky avocado left a bit to be desired. :)

So i was thinking, is there a way to "fake" it being ripe if you don't have a couple days to mate it with a banana? can it be roasted or baked or...???
