CONTEST: Call For Avocado Recipes

If you’ve got a special avocado recipe with a culinary twist, it could win $3,000.

Avocados originated in Mexico. Central Mexico’s sun-drenched climate; fertile, rich soil; and abundant rainfall combine to create a very creamy avocado. Check out the history of the avocado.

The Hass variety of avocado, grown in Mexico, is prized by chefs as the world’s finest. It’s our favorite avocado. While Hass avocados grow elsewhere, it’s important to note that as with coffee, Cabernet Sauvignon and any agricultural product, not all Hass avocados are created equal.

Mexico is the world leader in growing (and eating!) avocados. It’s also the only place in the world where the avocado tree blooms 4 times a year, so avocados are in season year-round. No wonder avocados are such a part of Mexican cuisine!

But that’s not what this recipe contest is about. Your amazing guacamole recipe won’t cut it. The goal here is to show what Avocados from Mexico can do outside of Mexican cuisine.

So, enter an avocado recipe that introduce the fruit to another cuisine. Sure, avocados love cilantro and chiles. But how about avocados with pasta, chick peas, kasha or catfish? Add your own twist.

Here’s how to enter:

1. Post your recipe on your blog, community recipe site or Facebook page through May 12. (Only individuals 18 years or older living in the U.S. can enter). Write about it on your blog, if you have one, to fill us in on your avocado adventure!

2. Then enter it on, also by May 12.

3. Recipes will be judged on taste, creative use of the avocado and ease in preparation. The winner will be announced on May 24, 2010.
