Avocado Recipes – Bacon Avocado Corn Bread

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Avocados from Mexico for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

With the colder weather, it’s pretty common for me to have a pot of chili simmering for dinner.  I love corn bread with my chili, and I love avocados. I got a crazy idea to mix the two. I looked up Avocado Recipes to find that it’s pretty common to bake with avocados. They make a great substitute for butter. I’ve been wanting to try this Mexican Corn Bread recipe from Mique at 30 Handmade Days.

I experimented and changed it quiet a bit, but it was still delicious! The avocados made it SO moist! It was a hit with the family and the perfect compliment to our chili. Anytime I can work healthy fats into my diet, I do it!
