Did you know avocados are a fruit?
I didn’t until recently.
I’m not sure that it matters really, what matters is that they are GOOD FOR YOU and not just limited to a specific meal or type of cooking. You can incorporate avocados into just about anything!
I recently had the opportunity to ask Chef Pati Jinich from the PBS show Pati’s Mexican Table a few questions about avocados and incorporating them into our cooking. We actually watch her show and are big fans so I was pretty excited to hear her answering my questions!
I also received some great Avocado “swag”!
Avocados really are such a versatile fruit, you’d be amazed at the creative recipes that include avocado in the ingredients list. Below is just a few unique recipes that you can make to incorporate avocados into your diet.
