It’s true, I do. I have to admit it wasn’t love at first sight. It wasn’t until, as a newlywed, my husband encouraged me to give them a try. Since then, I’ve been a huge fan! On burgers, on sandwiches, on tacos, with rice, by themselves, and most definitely in a freshly made guacamole, I absolutely adore adding Avocados from Mexico to my food.
If you’ve never tried making homemade guacamole before, by the way, you should go for it – it’s amazing! We make ours with 5 avocados, the juice of two limes, half a can of Rotel w/ cilantro & lime juice, minced red onion, minced garlic, chopped fresh cilantro and salt to taste. You can also add diced jalapeno if you want a little extra spice.
Do you love avocados too? Apparently we’re not alone. Over 27,000 people like the “Avocados From Mexico” page on Facebook! This page makes it easy for us avocado fans to share the love – they have ringtones, wallpapers, and badges you can download for free. I got one of the free ringtones. All I had to do was scan the QR code with my smart phone, fill in my email address, and they sent the ringtone right to me.
I also found this cute badge that I think I should add to every recipe I post with avocados in it:
