It’s avocado season and if you’re looking for inspiration, we have 13 delicious dishes featuring this beautiful green superfood!

No. 1: Poached Eggs with Bacon, Avocado and Lime Mojo

This elegant and flavorful option features poached eggs and a Cuban-inspired spicy mojo sauce served on a bed of crispy bacon on a toasted baguette, with avocado and lime sprinkled above. Delish!

No. 2: Green Migas Deviled Eggs

For this deviled egg recipe, Rach adds the equivalent of pico de gallo (finely chopped tomatoes, onion, jalapeno and cilantro) to her egg yolks, then adds a whole ripe avocado, green hot sauce, and grated garlic. Rach pipes it into her egg whites then tops with green onion slices and crushed tortilla chips.

No. 3: Rotisserie Chicken Cobb Salad with Avocado Ranch Dressing

For a hearty but still light and refreshing summer side, try this Cobb salad, also made with time-saving rotisserie chicken.

No. 4: Eat-Your-Greens Burgers with Avocado Ranch Dressing

For this juicy burger, Rach grinds up baby kale and puts it right into the patties! Brilliant!

No. 5: Scarlett Smorynski's Avocado Ice Cream

Why not cool down with some healthy avocado ice cream? This recipe really could not be easier. Just blend up avocado, heavy cream and agave, then freeze, that’s it.

No. 6: Chorizo-Zucchini Posole with Chipotle

Rachael compares her take on the traditional Mexican stew posole to a healthy version of nachos, because she plates up homemade tortilla strips, shredded cheese, radishes, avocado, and pours a rich, spicy chicken and zucchini soup over it.

No. 7: Mexican Hot Dogs

Put a Mexican spin on an American favorite with Rachael’s hot dog recipe. She garnishes her bacon-wrapped dogs with pico de gallo, refried beans, crispy tortilla chips and an avocado crema.

No. 8: Turkey and Green Chili Burgers with Guacamole

This hugely flavorful burger is one you don’t have to feel guilty about, since it’s made with turkey and also features nutrient-dense avocado!

No. 9: BLTA Dip

This dip will be a home run at any time of year, but especially during baseball season! Ryan starts with a base of cream cheese, sour cream and mayo, then adds scallions, both smoked and regular mozzarella, crisp chopped bacon, roasted green chiles, then bakes it all in a pie plate. Right before serving, he adds lemon juice-dressed romaine spears, roasted cherry tomatoes, grilled avocado wedges and Ritz crackers. Yum!

No. 10: Bob Harper’s Avocado Tuna Salad

This tuna salad isn’t missing anything! Bob mixes mashed avocado with tuna, diced cucumbers, sugar free pickles and pickled jalapenos. Delish!

No. 11: Deviled Chicken Salad-Stuffed Avocados

Find yourself in a lunch rut? Even if you have practically no time to prepare a healthy meal for yourself, we are positive you can handle this delicious treat. Just shred some rotisserie chicken, whip up a quick salad, and heap it into a halved avocado. Lunch is served!

No. 12: Grilled Guacamole

For this different take on guacamole, the tomatoes, onion, pepper and avocado are grilled to bring out a deeper flavor. Rachael also toasts her chips, which results in a nutty taste. Yum!

No. 13: Taco Baked Stuffed Potatoes

Want tacos AND potatoes? No need to choose just one. Rachael created this delicious Taco Stuffed Potato that melds all your favorite taco elements – seasoned ground beef, cheddar cheese, jalapenos, and even lettuce, avocado and salsa toppings – with yummy baked potato goodness.
