Avocado Butter

You possibly didn’t know but the butter is not of Mexican origin. Its true origin is unknown but is possible that it comes from the Vikings, the Celts or the Mongols. And just as this and many other recipes it was brought to Mexico by the Europeans and it was adapted to the local cuisine.

The best way of adapting the butter to a Mexican context is with “the avocado". The beauty of this combination is that
both ingredients are soft and creamy . Although the recipe goes further because it is also aromatized with coriander and is seasoned with some ingredients. The flavor that is obtained is extraordinary and we are sure that you will use it in many occasions.

The uses of the avocado butter are multiple , like any other butter it can be enjoyed with bread and if you want this mouthful to be very sophisticated you can add small pieces of smoked salmon.
