Easy Beef Fajitas with Avocado Sauce Recipe

Beef Fajitas with Avocado Sauce

Nutrient-rich avocados are rich in the antioxidant vitamins (A, C and E) that protect cells from the damage inflicted by free-radicals and are useful for preventing cardiac disease. Not only does eating avocado provide its own antioxidants, it also improves the absorption of antioxidants from other fruit and vegetables eaten at the same time. Most avocados reach the supermarket in an un-ripened form. As they ripen, they start to lose important antioxidant nutrients especially vitamin C, so eat as soon as they are ripe.

Beef Fajitas with Avocado Sauce
If you love the traditional beef fajita but are not crazy about the dark, rich flavor that's associated with it, then you may want to try serving it with avocados instead. Avocados have a nice mild, almost sweet flavor, which goes well with the spices and the sweetness of the beef. You can use any kind of fresh avocado that you like, and I have found that the poblano pepper and mushrooms to provide the best flavor.
