I was made in Puerto Rico, born and raised in Massachusetts. As a result, I speak Spanglish often and I have learned to Americanize my favorite recipes. It’s not uncommon for me to pick a few random ingredients from my kitchen and put them together to create a yummy concoction on the fly. That’s how my Plantain Avocado Toast using Avocados From Mexico was created. For when you want a bit of that plátano flavor without having to cook and you want the right mix of Latin flavors to awaken your taste buds.

Toast to Your Heritage for Hispanic Heritage Month

My family grew up eating aguacates with EVERYTHING. We ate them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Anytime was and is a good time for avocados.

My mom’s expressive love language being acts of service she made sure we had three full meals a day and she took much pride in finding the perfect avocados for us to enjoy. It’s something I took for granted up until I became an adult.

It wasn’t until my travels that I learned about avocado toast. I was happy to find a new treat I could indulge in that was just as delicious as it was nutritious. I’ve discovered that in every restaurant offering avocado toast you’ll find one of two things, either a simple take on it or a unique mixture of ingredients.

I love to mix things up with my food and that’s why I love everything about my avocado toast recipe using Avocados From Mexico. I’m obsessed with tomatoes, I have grown madly in love with avocados, red onions add a bit of sharp flavor, and cilantro is just my best friend.

All avocado toast, but especially this one, reminds me of sushi. Such a small but filling flavor medley. A one-of- a-kind meal that’s tasty and colorful. (disclaimer: if you hate sushi don’t worry —avocado toast tastes nothing like it, but if you love sushi just consider it another delicious option.)
