Chimichurri spice gives this burger an Argentinian flair, and cubed avocado adds an irresistible creaminess. Together, the two make an unbeatable pair.

In this recipe juicy shrimp skewers are topped with a secret ingredient— lemon-basil butter! Marinated tomatoes and creamy avocado make this orzo salad something special.

Unlike turtlenecks, Tamagotchis, and tanning beds the California Hass avocados we use never go out of style. They are grown year-round. So, even though fall is upon us you can enjoy that avocado creaminess to your heart’s content.

Please tell me what to do with the gray-black spots appearing on the outside of the fleshy part. In this video, and on cooking shows, it appears that they are either not there or totally ignored. Of course, I find then unappetizing and I cut them off.

Jacqueline says:

Hi Natalie – a few bumps and scrapes is totally normal. Feel free to cut around them – we promise the rest of the avocado is still delicious!
