Avocado-lovers rejoice! You can have avocados any time of year. While California’s growing season for avocado is usually February through September, Mexico has been pretty consistent in growing avocados year-round. If you’re not used to eating avocados during the winter, we have the perfect recipes for you to try out. This winter, you can enjoy skirt steak with an avocado crema or enjoy avocados with winter citrus and pumpkin seeds. Use fall fruits and vegetables like sweet potatoes, pumpkin, etc. to make wintertime dishes.
Here are a few recipes that will help you enjoy avocados year-round:
Avocado with Blood Orange and Pumpkin Seeds
The toasted pumpkin seeds gives this dish a nice crunch while the blood orange adds much-needed acidity to this avocado appetizer.
Chicken Avocado Burgers with Sweet Potato Fries and Aioli
When the cold weather hits, enjoy avocados in your burger. You can make a burger with beef, turkey, or chicken. This recipe calls for chicken, so you’ll have a lean burger that’s loaded with avocado flavor. One half of the avocado gets mixed in the recipe and the other half is used as a garnish, along with a Greek yogurt dressing.
Steak Fajitas with Avocado Lime Crema
The sweet, spicy, and smoky flavor of the chipotle is wonderful with the richness of the avocado crema. Skirt steak is perfect for fajitas. It’s rich in flavor and when cooked properly and sliced thinly it becomes tender — it is a very satisfying winter dish.
