Avocados, Bacon, Brownies, and Tequila (It’s What’s For Dinner)

398 Flares 398 Flares ×
I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Avocados from Mexico. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

Logo-Avocados-from-mexicoAvocados are one of those foods that I rarely had while I was growing up (my mom just didn’t use them that often) but now that I’m an adult, I absolutely love them. My husband does, too. Our favorite way to use them is to add sliced avocado to our BLTs. He calls them “BLATs.” I just call them delicious!

If I could grow avocados in my backyard, I would, but I can’t, so I’m perfectly content to buy them at the grocery store. So where exactly are avocados grown? Good question. Turns out, the best avocados come from Mexico.

Just like any popular regional food item, our neighbors to the south have created a website designed to spread the word about the buttery awesomeness of the Mexican avocado. It’s called the Avocados from Mexico Community. That’s right, it’s way more than just a website, it’s a community!

I only recently discovered the community, but it’s already one of my favorite websites. It’s got an avocado blog, a video channel, and a huge selection of recipes. Speaking of recipes, users can share their avocado creations on the site!

The community is also full of useful info about avocados. For example, avocados are considered to be one of nature’s super foods and an excellent source of heart-healthy fats. Plus, they’re high in fiber, cholesterol-free and provide nearly 20 essential nutrients, including vitamins A, B6, C, D, E, K and potassium. What does this mean for you? Avocados can help to promote eye and heart health, lower cholesterol and blood pressure, and decrease the risk of cancer, stroke and heart disease.

I could go on and on about the health benefits of avocados, but let’s get to the juicy part – the yummy recipes! Below are just a few of the MANY avocado creations you’ll find on the Avocados from Mexico Community.

brownies

Avocado, Bacon & Chimichurri Grilled Cheese – Bacon, cheese, avocado … what’s not to love about this sandwich?

Chicken Avocado Pasta – I’m making this recipe ASAP!

Avocado Chili Brownies topped with Avocado Tequila Ice Cream – I don’t even know where to start when it comes to how incredible this recipe is. Okay, I’ll start with the tequila.

Guac on the Wild Side Fiesta Bar – The word “bar” in the title of this recipe is what caught my eye, but you can’t have a list of avocado recipes without a good guacamole, right?

Avocado Love Margarita – Do I really need to explain why I included this recipe?

I don’t know about you, but I’m headed to the grocery store as soon as I publish this blog entry. We’re having all of the above for dinner tonight, and it’s going to be avo-mazing!
