Best Avocado Dishes in RVA

 As Avocados have found themselves back on people’s plates as a healthy alternative, this isn’t the first-time society has become obsessed with the little green fruit.

Avocados can be found in its early days 10,000 years ago in Puebla, South Central Mexico. The Avocado had strong influences in Mayan and Aztec cultures, making people think it had other worldly powers giving it various nicknames – Fertility Fruit, Alligator Pear, Butter Fruit. Later on, through the Spanish conquest of the South American continent, the avocado was introduced to Europe and became a commercialized plant in the early 20th century. Some people believe that Avocados have strong health benefits, nutritionally speaking the Avocado consists of diverse fats as about 75% of Avocados energy comes from its fat content. If you're Avocado crazy and want to go beyond the fruit itself, Avocado dried leaves are often used as a spice!

Today 79% of avocados exported from Mexico come to the United States. As September 16th marks Guacamole Day, take a bite into Richmond’s favorite Avocado treats.
