Chipotle Avocado Toast Holiday Wreath + La Morena Sweepstakes


Who would have thought that the majority of 2020 would have been impacted by a worldwide pandemic? Now that we're into the holiday season there are many things we can't do safely, such as gathering with extended family and friends this year. It sure is looking like Christmas entertaining with be scaled down, but that doesn't mean smaller celebrations can't be just as fun and meaningful.


Christmas Table Small Scale Celebration



Make the Season Bright & Memorable


While you may not be able to engage in family traditions that you've be doing for years, perhaps generations, the good news is you can and should still make this season memorable as you celebrate the holidays at home with loved ones. 

Besides, with all that extra time at home together, it's all the more reason to enjoy each other's company as well as to dine on delicious, festive homemade food that's easy to make.

Avocado Toast, still all the rage on Instagram, was the inspiration for this Christmas food idea. How about trying this new south of the border-inspired Chipotle Avocado Toast Holiday Wreath recipe I just created? It's easy and fun for both kids and adults to make, plus it's a great family activity to spend some quality time together in the kitchen.

Chipotles and Aztec Culture


Fun Fact: Chipotles are actually smoke-dried jalapeno peppers, which because of their food preservation qualities, were favored in cooking by ancient cultures such as the Aztecs in Mesoamerica. The Spanish word chipotle is derived from the Nahuatl (language of the Aztecs) "chilpocti" which means smoked chili.

Preparation

1. Make guacamole by mashing 3/4 of one large avocado in a bowl, reserving the rest for garnish. Alternately, you can use a cup of ready-made guacamole.

3. Spread guacamole on sliced and toasted bagels, leaving the center open on each half to form a wreath shape.

4. Chop the remainder of the avocado in tiny chunks and add to top of guacamole to for texture.

5. Finish by sprinkling pomegranate arils around the wreath, then slice a thin piece of a green onion leaf and gently tie into a bow.

6. Serve with La Morena Pickled Jalapenos along with a bowl of the remaining Chipotle Peppers and sauce for dipping. 

Enjoy making and eating this delicious Chipotle Avocado Toast during the holidays. To spread some cheer, consider preparing a plate of these as a surprise Christmas snack for someone in your community, too.
