Avocados have become one of the trendiest foods of the past few years. There’s no denying that avocados are delicious and refreshing but did you know they’re also incredibly healthy? Avocados are known to help control blood pressure, reduce stroke risk and protect against cancer. On top of that, they are also proven to promote eye health, eliminate bad breath and help fight aging. Need we say more?

If you’re looking for great ways to incorporate avocados into your diet, consider trying these recipes sometime soon:

1. Chicken Sandwich with Chipotle Mayo and Avocado

This is a simple recipe that you can make when you want something a little more exciting than the everyday sandwich. Spicy chipotle mayonnaise gives it some kick, while the avocado adds some creaminess.

2. Crab Stuffed Baked Avocados

A fun take on a crab salad. This dish is baked and served in an avocado so it’s even more visually pleasing. Your friends will think it came straight from a restaurant!

3. Bacon Guacamole

In this twist on the traditional recipe, bacon and chipotle in adobo are stirred into the guacamole, which adds a wonderful smoky flavor that pairs so perfectly with the cool, creamy avocado.

4. Chicken, Bacon and Avocado Quesadillas

Quesadillas can be just as versatile as sandwiches, in my opinion, and this version combines chicken, cheese, bacon, and buttery slices of avocado. The crisp, salty bacon is perfectly balanced by the cool, creamy avocado. Serve ’em with salsa and sour cream on the side.

5. Avocado Crab Chowder

An easy and delicious crab chowder that you can make after work or for a work potluck/get-together. It’s the perfect comfort dish.

6. Herbed Shrimp and Avocado Salad

A variety of textures combine to make a delicious and healthy salad. This has become a go-to recipe in our family because it’s so refreshing, easy and good for your health.

7. Mango and Avocado Salsa

Many recipes for this type of salsa include random things like bell peppers or vinegar. This one doesn’t, and so preserves the intended tropical flavor. Chop the ingredients finely for a salsa, or chop large or julienne and serve as a side salad. In general, the mango and avocado should be cut to the same size.
