I didn’t eat avocados growing up at all but when I moved to Florida I tried them and totally loved them! You can get avocados all year round here and they come in many varieties however I am partial to avocados from Mexico! You’ll definitely want to enter the Mini Chef Video Contest when you hear what the prizes are!
I enjoy avocados plain or in all different kinds of recipes. My favorite recipe with avocado is:
Nicole’s “Famous” Tacos
Soft Flour tortillas, ground meat with taco seasoning, mashed avocado (season them with lime and salt), cheese
Heat tortillas, add meat and cheese and put mashed avocados on top.
We love this meal – it’s super simple and so flavorful with the mashed avocados on it. Yum! It takes just a few minutes
Kids love the creaminess of avocado as well. id you know that just 3 slices of avocado pack potassium, fiber, folate, vitamin C, E and those B-complex vitamins that support memory and brain function? Avocados are a great for you food (actually a fruit!) that you can feel great about giving your kids.
Starting November 14th, Avocados from Mexico is hosting a video contest for parents of children ages 5-15. Submit a 1-3 minute video of your child/children preparing an avocado dish and be sure to have them include why they love avocados and the catchy Avocados from Mexico jingle found on their website. Videos will be judged on the Mini Chef’s personality and the presence of avocado.
