It’s been a busy week, full of activities and responsibilities; now, it’s time to relax and enjoy your weekend to the max. The kids don’t have school and you intend to sleep in as long as you can — you deserve it. In the afternoon, you’ve got plans with the family, or maybe you’re going out shopping with your friends or taking the kids to the park so they can spend hours playing their favorite games without you having to worry about running home to make dinner. After all, it’s your weekend.
But for this dream to become reality, you’ve got to plan ahead. Don’t worry — avocados from Mexico have got your back, providing you with meals that are fast, easy, and delicious, made in the blink of an eye.
You’ve got lots of options, from nachos and sandwiches to soups and stews, all of which can be produced without a massive effort. Here, we present a few options that can help you make sure this weekend is a true celebration.
You’ve already got fresh avocados, right? Now, all you have to do is put together a dish that satisfies you and doesn’t tie you down in the kitchen. Time is golden, and even more when the day is sunny and there’s lots to do outside with your loved ones.
If you’ve never made arepas, this recipe might sound difficult, but it’s not. In fact, you should call the kids to the kitchen to help you, and you’ll see that the 30 minute prep time for this recipe passes in no time flat.
Arepas are perfect weekend foods, as you can eat them at the table or pack them up to go. They get protein from the chicken and the beans, and the fiber of the avocado (one serving gives you 11% of your daily fiber needs) will help you feel full for a longer period of time.
Who doesn’t love a grilled cheese sandwich? It’s one of those comfort foods. And this recipe, which adds avocado to the mix, couldn’t be easier to make. In fact, you can make a dozen of these pretty quickly, so make sure you’ve got all the ingredients on hand, especially if the kids have friends coming over or if a sleepover is planned.
We know you love your family and you want to impress them with dishes at the dinner table. But if you want a “WOW!” factor without spending too much time in the kitchen, this recipe for poached halibut with roasted potatoes and avocado cream is the one for you. It’s not only impressive and fast (20 minutes or less), it’s healthy, too.
Avocado makes it easy to prepare food that’s quick and delicious, especially if you plan ahead. Don’t forget that avocados from Mexico are available year-round, so you can enjoy them on the weekend during any season.
