CLOSED: Party Wrap-Up and GIVEAWAY: $100 Gift Card from The Amazing Avocado

Avocados from Mexico

UPDATE: Congrats to comment #134: Jeanne.

Avocados are the hottest new ingredient in healthy eating and amazingly they are available ALL year around! Guilt-free eating with all that GOOD fat. Yummo.

This month, several of my favorite bloggy friends came over for a fun recipe swap sponsored by Avocados from Mexico.

avocados from Mexico
Since avocados are so  incredibly versatile, we had everything avocado: Dishes, Desserts, Drinks, etc. which you can read about below!
AND, keep reading to learn how you can enter to win $100 from The Amazing Avocado by commenting on this blog post.

DISHES:

Guacamole (Of Course!) with Corn Chips (which I totally bought from a Mexican company to save a few minutes when we were busy prepping all the other avo-goodies.)

Avo-Sliders (what I made from all the leftover avocados after our party was done!): (Just slice avocados into thin slices to layer on top bun. These particular mini-burgers also had bleu cheese crumbles mixed in with the meat. Yummo!!)

Avo-Taco Dip by Stephanie. (Poor Stephanie had sick kids at home that day and didn’t have time to bring the whole taco dish but we are glad she made it to the party!)

Avocado Dip

DESSERTS:

Chocolate Avocado and Banana Avocado Pies byKelly and  Julie:

Watermelon-Avocado Kabobs by Hilary Superb!

DRINKS:

Apple-Avocado Smoothie (My favorite from the Diet Digest Recipe Book) See recipe in this previous post.

(Note: we tried making an avocado margarita but couldn’t seem to get the chunkiness out of it. Opted for Golden Margarita with our delish Avo-dishes.)

Watch below for our own very special Avocado video made on Kelly’s Vine app! Oh . . . Guacamole!
