Avocados are great tasting and a good source of nutrients, including 20 essential vitamins and minerals. Plus they are available year-round so they are a staple of my family's diet. In fact, mashed avocado was Marlie's first solid food.
Avocado is really a unique food. It can be mashed, sliced, and baked into so many delicious recipes. The Avocados from Mexico team is hosting a Spookamole recipe contest to find the most creative dishes for Halloween parties! The green color is perfect. Avocado ice cream with a waffle cone hat can be a witch and guacamole can be goblin snot. Get the idea? Now go put on your chef hat and join the fun. Here is my recipe entry:
