The world's first avocado was grown and cultivated in Mexico countless generations ago. Thanks to the region's fertile volcanic soil, ideal climate and centuries of expert cultivation, Mexico remains the source of the world's finest avocados. Today, Mexico is the only place in the world where avocado trees naturally bloom four times a year. Producing a year-round bounty of irresistibly rich and creamy avocados whose unsurpassed quality and distinctly delicious flavor are always in season.
Ever since I can remember, I've been eating avocados. How could I not? It's often one of the first foods given to a lot of Latino kids – avocados & beans are easy to mush & feed. If there's nothing to eat, most kids these days make sandwiches or pop in some frozen food. I remember if I didn't have my mom around to cook something for me, I would grab some tortillas & avocados & that would be my snack. Avocados are mostly known to be in guacamole but to me, it would always be in our salad, in some sandwiches – you name it, avocado was in it somehow.
Growing up eating avocados, I try to get Adrian to eat them too – which is why avocados have become a staple in our kitchen. I've gotten him to eat them by sneaking in avocados by mixing them with cooked egg whites – Aguacate con huevo cocido picados – which he loves. This has to be the simplest recipe ever but it's really good & can be eaten in different ways. You simply cook some eggs, cut up the egg whites and cut up the avocado. I add a little bit of salt for taste – not too much – just a tiny bit & mix. That's it! Aguacate con huevo cocido picados can be eaten as a side dish (which is how we often eat it) with our arroz con pollo (rice & chicken) or you can get a tortilla and fill it up with the aguacate con huevo cocido picados or simply eat it on it's own – which is how Adrian likes it. Did you know avocados have more potassium than bananas? Yep. One of the main reasons I don't mind Adrian snacking on them. Healthy & yummy. 🙂
I know mine isn't that big of a recipe but if you have a recipe that uses avocados, I'd love to hear about it – I need new ways to make them! Or if you'd like to share them with others, you can do so at the Avocados from Mexico English Fan Recipe Page of the Spanish Fan Recipe Page. Sharing is caring! 😀
