Avocados are an extraordinary fruit. The avocado leads all other fruits in beta-carotene and exceeds the banana in potassium. It contains more protein, potassium, magnesium, folic acid, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, biotin, pantothenic acid, vitamin E, and vitamin K per ounce than any other fruit.
So, when Maura Hernandez of “The Other Side of the Tortilla” blog invited me to an “I Love Avocados” Live Party with a bunch of other Latina Bloggers, I jumped!
First of all, I love hanging with my sisters, especially those who love food. Better yet, Maura was making all kinds of wonderfulness with Mexican avocados – guacamole with mango and pomegranate seeds, guaca-hummus, a spicy molcajete de salsa verde con queso fresco y aguacate (pictured) and for dessert paletas de aguacate – avocado popsicles! Super rico!
We foodies find inspiration for our dishes everywhere. Maura found hers at a restaurant in Mexico City. She loved the molcajete so much she came home and made it for us! Tweak however you want. I’m sure your taste-testers will thank you.
You can find the paletas recipe and more on Maura’s blog www.theothersideofthetortilla.com.
She made them with avocados, coconut milk and sweetened condensed milk. Go easy on that last ingredient. You want to taste the avocado, not hide it.
Best of all, Maura’s a generous and kind human being. Win-win! So check out her avocado recipes. Hopefully, you’ll get inspired!
