Years ago, we were RV traveling with Friends down in Mexico. We were driving along and saw some cooking beside the road. We found a wide spot to park our trucks and trailers and stopped to check it out. They were cooking fresh chunks of pork meat in a cast iron large washpot, over wood. It cooked down in it's own fat. We didn't speak Spanish, nor they English, but they got across to us that we could eat there. They took us to a covered patio type place, to one side of where the cooking was going on. This was set up as a roadside fruit and vegetable stand with two tables for eating.
We ate the pork meat wrapped up in flour tortillas with sliced fresh tomatoes, sliced onion and sliced avocados on them.. I have to tell you we pigged out on that fresh food, washing it down with Mexican beer.
This was our first opportunity to eat the huge Mexican avocados. At that time, they were only found in Mexico...Now they are raised in the warmer climates of the U.S. where it doesn't freeze. I bought some yesterday at the Fiesta Grocery store I was at in Houston. They are different in size and flavor than the Haas avocados. To compare them so you'd understand... Haas are like milk...Mexican big ones are like a milkshake...they are that much richer and tastier.
I bought ten of them...and we will rush to eat them...I got some ready to eat...and some that need ripening first. I took a photo of the Haas beside one of these Tropical Avocados. I put the large avocado in a 1 cup measuring cup so you could get a sense of the size of it.
They stay that bright color of green and are smooth and shiny skinned compared to the Haas.
They are simply marvelous!!
Enjoy your day!!
