Our Mini Family: 10 Avocado Recipes that Will Give You Serious FOMO

10 Avocado Recipes that Will Give You Serious FOMO

We all have that one friend who can't pass up adding avocado to basically everything.

For the longest time, I really had no understanding of why people were so obsessed with avocado. And then I moved to Arizona. Southwest cuisine is loaded with avocado--in fact, I remember a few years ago one time we were out with some friends and we were all ordering the same taco order. Until the waiter got to me and I said, "I'll have what everyone else is having, except hold the avocado." *GASP!*  Everyone just looked at me like I had told the waiter the worst news of his life. 

That afternoon, I got a lesson from some buddies that I was basically committing a sin as a Phoenix resident when I tried to order my meal with no avocado. After having tried it that day, I didn't love it on a taco at first, but I revisited avocado once again when I tried guacamole for the first time. Only after I had tried guacamole did I really start to enjoy avocado again. But can you imagine? Imagine if I hadn't gone back to try avocado. Who knows how many amazing avocado meals I would have missed out on! 

Today, I'm sharing a bunch of avocado recipes that are sure to give you foodie FOMO (aka foodie "fear of missing out!")
