Avo Awards!

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Avocados from Mexico. I received compensation for this post, however all opinions stated are my own.

Hi guys!

Today I’m here with something a little different than usual. Instead of one recipe, I have four! You lucky ducks!

I’m working with Avocados from Mexico once again. I’ve worked with them in the past and am so excited for the opportunity to do so again. Avocados are my favorite fruit! Plus, be sure to read through to the bottom for details on the $500 Avo Awards prize pack I’m giving away!

I’m competing in a friendly little blog competition with three other bloggers. Are you ready for the Avo Awards?

Awards Season watch parties are becoming a trendier social event each year, and Avocados from Mexico and I want to make sure you are ready for the big event! Being ready for a party basically means busting out the gallon buckets of guac, amirite?

I’ve nominated my recipes using avocados from Mexico in the following four Avo Awards categories:

chicken enchilada skillet recipe 3

o My Chicken Enchilada Skillet for Best Picture, showing the best food styling / food photo featuring avocados!

grilled avocado

o My Grilled Avocados for Best Supporting Avocado, featuring a side dish that is grilled to perfection and filled with salsa!

The Gobbler - a unique recipe for a turkey sandwich!

o My favorite sandwich, The Gobbler, for Best Leading Avocado.

Southwestern Avocado Salad Dressing - made with avocado, cilantro, and lime!

o My Southwestern Avocado Salad Dressing for Best Dressed Avocado, my favorite salad dressing that features avocados.

You’re totally going to hop over to the Avocados from Mexico facebook page (voting should be available later today!) and vote for me, right? Don’t leave me hanging, guys!

We’re also hosting a Twitter Party on February 26th and I hope you’ll join me. The party is from 9-10pm EST and you can join us by tweeting #AvoAwards. Follow me here!

Now for the best part! I’m giving away a $500 Avo Awards prize pack to one lucky reader who votes in the Avo Awards.

    OMG, my mouth is watering for Avocados right now! I love the idea of the Grilled Avocados..they look awesome and not a lot of things to take away the flavor of the avocado itself. I love them plain with just salt too.

  20. An impressive share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a coworker who was conducting a
    little research on this. And he in fact bought me dinner simply because I found it for him…
    lol. So let me reword this…. Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending time to
    talk about this topic here on your website.

    Having read this I believed it was really enlightening.

    I appreciate you finding the time and effort to put this content together.
    I once again find myself personally spending a significant amount of time both reading and commenting.
    But so what, it was still worthwhile!
