Palta Rica

Palta Rica

In Chile, avocado is called palta.  Palta es rica.     We eat palta almost every day and never get sick of it.  Sliced.  Cubed.  Mashed onto sandwiches.  Pureed with basil as a creamy pasta topper.  I even jumped on the chococado (chocolate-avocado combination) bandwagon, but really hated to waste the flavor of such an incredible fruit. … Continue reading
