All About Avocados – my questions answered by Chef Pati Jinich + recipes

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.

How do you like to enjoy avocado?

      Wow that’s great! I still have to hide some things but Abby recently tried mushrooms and she loves them. They also have been eating cauliflower disguised as mashed potatoes and have no idea.

    I do not like the taste of avocados but I do try to mix them in with other foods because they are SO healthy!

  2. says

    I swear avocados are out to get me this year. I can not stand them at all. Detest them and yet the past 3 months everything I read has some hint of avocado in it. I know they’re healthy. Guess it’s time to suck it up and take the leap in trying them again.

  3. Robin (Masshole Mommy) says

    It’s funny because for most of my life I disliked avocados. Then recently (within the past year), I discovered that I like them now and these days I put avocado on everything I can.
