Avocados from Mexico: Avocado Chili Brownies

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Avocados from Mexico. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

My family eats a lot of fruits and vegetables, especially now that we are trying to eat healthy as much as possible. One fruit that we absolutely can’t live without is avocados. They are an excellent source of healthy fat, so we try to eat them on a daily basis. My whole family loves them, especially my twin girls. We like to slice them up and put them on pretty much anything — salads, wraps, sandwiches, tacos, soups — but our favorite way to enjoy them is in guacamole. I can’t even make a batch without it disappearing in minutes!

I tend to use avocados the same way every day, so I decided that I should find new ways to use them. The Avocados from Mexico Community has been a great resource for me. There are tons of avocado recipes that community members have submitted, an avocado blog with recipe ideas, an avocado channel where you can view recipe tutorials, and there’s even a Chef’s Corner where you can find avocado recipes from top chefs. There are so many great features of the site, but I find myself spending the most time looking through all of the yummy recipes. I have found so many that I want to make!

I know you’re hoping for the recipe, so I’ve included it below. Enjoy!
