Avocado Feta Salad Salsa Recipe #iloveavocados #MC #sponsored

We are huge avocado fans in this house! We also love eating Mexican recipes so every time we have any type of Mexican food you can bet there will be avocados. How about you and your family? Do you like avocados? How do you prepare them? 



Most of the time when I prepare an avocado for us to eat, it is just sliced and served with a splash of lemon or lime, garlic and a pinch of salt. That is all we need to enjoy fresh Avocados from Mexico. When I make guacamole, I do the same thing except I smash the avocados with a forth, add same seasoning and a pinch of cumin. At home I do not add sour cream to my guacamole. Sometimes I will add plain greek yogurt if I'm making a layered dip that includes guacamole.

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Avocados from Mexico. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating. As part of this campaign I found the Avocados from Mexico Community website. Have you been there? If you like avocados then this is the go-to spot to find other mexican recipes, avocado fans, avocado goodies such as ringtones, wallpapers, recipes and of course an Avocado for Mexico Store!

While browsing around their site, I found that I love the Community Recipes section. I'm a visual learner so when I see photos of recipes, I can easily browse and find something new to make. In the Community I found at least 7 recipes to try and added to my favorites. I love that the recipes can be easily favorite. Besides adding a recipe to your favorites, you can click the ingredients, add to your shopping cart and print! How cool is that? 

I found the site very tasty and user friendly. While looking at the recipes and the Community Blog, I was truly inspired to try some new, for us, out of the box recipes. When I say that I mean try using avocados to make popsicles and brownies! I pretty much have avoided doing this as well as frying avocados. No one in my family has asked for these type of recipes so I haven't tried them. Have you? 

Besides viewing the recipes, I enjoyed watching the Avocado Channel which, again, inspired me to try some new recipes. The Chef's corner is amazing and the pictures are mouth-watering. I'm so excited to have found the Avocado for Mexico Community and plan on checking in frequently! If you are in anyway a fan of avocados check out the site and see if you find something new to make your family! 

Here is one of our most recent favorite recipes using avocados and other ingredients. Let me know if you like it! We tried it for the first time at a 4th of July Party! Want to be a good hostess? Have a recipe card with the recipe by your food. This allows your guest to see what is in the recipe and be prepared with extra cards because they will ask! Thank you Becky for the inspiration!

Next week I am going to feature more avocado recipes we love so stop back in! Do you have any avocado recipes on your blog? Share the links below so that I can come see yours, too!
