Complement any Mexican dish with slices of avocado or a side of guacamole. Besides being tasty and eye pleasing, avocados are a rich source of good monounsaturated fat for overall health benefits.

When selecting your avocado, choose one that is consistently firm or soft all over — no bruises or soft spots.

Prevent the avocado from browning by leaving the pit in the bowl with the chopped or scooped avocado, or squeeze a little lime over it and then cover it in plastic wrap.

Happy Eating!
