Kick Off with Hass Avocados Recipe Contest and my favorite avocado recipe

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Hass Avocado Board featuring Hass Avocados for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I love Hass Avocados.  Growing up in California, we ate avocados all the time.  The best part was taking out the pit, sticking a toothpick in it and putting it in a cup of water.  We always thought it would sprout and we could grow our own avocado tree.

So lately, we have been trying to introduce healthier fats into our diet.  Enter the avocado!  1/5 of an avocado has only 50 calories and contributes nearly 20 vitamins and minerals!

So, I am super excited about this recipe contest !  They are having a weekly sweepstakes where they give away a box of avocados a week for 14 weeks!  And a recipe contest where the winner gets a trip to the Rose Bowl Game®!

So let's get creative!  Think outside the guacamole!  The avocado central website has tons of avocado recipes to get that creativity flowing.  One of our favorite ways to eat avocados comes from when my hubby lived in Africa.  We mix chunks of avocado with crab and tomatoes and eat it over French Bread.  It is so yummy!  When I lived in Brazil we ate a ton of avocados, too!  But sweet!  Avocado icecream, pudding, and straight with sugar!

The recipe I want to share with you today is my BLAM.  Tomatoes don't always go over well in this family, so instead of a traditional BLT, try this BLAM.  Bacon, lettuce, avocado and mango.  Oh so yummy!  Avocado and mango together is a delicious combination, and it gives it that sweet addition.

BLAM

Ingredients:

Toasted Ciabatta bread (I throw it under the broiler)

2 Tbls honey Greek yogurt

1 lettuce leaf

sliced mango

sliced avocado

cooked bacon (I by the precooked kind so my whole house doesn't stink up)

 

Instructions:

Spread the yogurt on both sides of the bread.  Layer all the other ingredients.  Enjoy!

 

So here are the details on the recipe contest.  I know you have an awesome recipe you want to submit!
