Hold up! It's National Avocado Day and that's a heavy rival with National Tequila Day that was this past Sunday! Kind of perfect they're in the same week. I'm going to cut to the chase and give you gals my top 3 recipes for some true avocado realness!!
Ummm, duh! I think we all new that would be TOP of the list! What you'll need:
Two avocado's ( More depending on how big of a portion your want to make)
1/2 a Vidalia onion
Trader Joe's Serrano Salsa Fresca
1 Clove Garlic
Dice up your onion, jalapeno (all or half depending on how spicy you like it), empty your avocados into a bowl and mix those three ingredients together. Then add chopped garlic, lime, pinch of salt/pepper to your liking and a few tablespoons of salsa. Taste and add upon whatever you think it needs. Once to your taste put it in the fridge for 30 minutes and then it's ready to serve!
Simply Sriracha Avocado Toast
This recipe is so easy but one of my favorites and an all time breakfast go too!
Whole Wheat Bread
1/2 of an Avocado
Red Pepper Flakes
Empty your half of an avocado into a bowl so you can mash it up. Once made into a spread and you've toasted the bread spread the avocado onto the the toast. Then sprinkle a few red pepper flakes and lightly squeeze sriracha to your liking! So delicious and good fats to start the day!
