WHAT CAN I MAKE WITH AVOCADOS?
This list of creative avocado recipes is really endless. Used as a healthy fat and base in so many recipes you’d be surprised at how you can sneak this simple ingredient into the following recipes:
- Add avocado to brownies! You’ll never even know it’s in there.
- Chop, dice, and season for an easy summer avocado salad that tops grilled meat perfectly!
- Use a mashed avocado in place of mayonnaise on your next BLT sandwich.
- Make a creamy avocado ranch salad dressing.

HOW DO YOU MAKE AVOCADOS TASTY?
There really are so many different spices and ingredients you can pair with an avocado. Chicken Salad will usually call for rotisserie chicken, mayo, salt and pepper.
Guacamole uses fresh jalapeno, onion, tomato, cilantro, salt and garlic.
Lemon juice and lime juice are favorites when creating any mexican inspired recipe.
Want to lighten up your avocado dip or dressing? Use greek yogurt in place of mayonnaise. It works wonders when paired with a few additional simple ingredients.
CAN AVOCADOS BE COOKED?
When you think about eating an avocado most often it’s raw, chopped up, or made into guacamole. I bet you didn’t know that’s not the only way you can enjoy this delicious fruit.
Avocado inside of a fried egg roll tastes amazing if done just right! Put it inside of a chicken burrito and you’ll be surprised at just how much you like it.
Avocado fries are another popular option when eating cooked avocados. The trick to cooked avocados is to make sure not to overcook them. They will turn mushy and bitter in the wrong recipe.
A quick cook time to melt cheese in the burrito, or a quick deep fry in a wonton wrapper work best.
