When I am looking for inspiration for a great dish to share with family and friends, I often turn to Avocados from Mexico to get me started. Avocados are rich in taste, but also contain nearly 20 vitamins, so you have something that tastes really good, and is also nutritious. It doesn’t get much better than that, right? I think that’s why I use avocados in recipes so often they are not only easy to cook with, but I also know that I am feeding my family a very nutritious ingredient.
You can take advantage of those same properties when planning your meals. Begin with snacks or appetizers. Whether you are having some people over a fun evening, or you have been invited over for a meal at a friend’s, Avocados from Mexico are a great beginning. How about my very own Spicy Avocado Dip? It’s easy to make, and I know your family will enjoy it as much as mine does:
It’s a little lighter and creamier than ordinary guacamole and everyone loves it, from my folks down to my little grandchildren! Avocados rich and creamy texture and distinctive flavor work well with so many other ingredients, so you have endless possibilities. Try combining some avocado cubes with a jarred salsa, for a fast and easy avocado dip. I think we all want to make sure that the meals we serve are tasty and nutritious. It’s good to know that Avocados are cholesterol and sodium free. They have 3.5 grams of unsaturated (monounsaturated and polyunsaturated) fats, which are naturally good fats. You really can’t go wrong when you add them to family favorites.
Try mixing diced avocado into scrambled eggs, add slices to a toasted cheese sandwich or serve alongside macaroni and cheese. Did you know that Avocados from Mexico are always the Hass type, which grow year round, and account for over 80% of avocados cultivated today? That means you will always be able to find them in the store when you want to make something special for your friends and family to enjoy.
