Not In Kansas {Recipe: Grilled Avocado and Steak Fajita Wrap}

Grilled Avocado Steak Fajita Wrap www.dineanddish.netThere are a few things we don’t have in Kansas… the ocean, The Kardashian’s and good avocados. Of those three I believe a big thank goodness is in order for the lack of Kardashian sisters. I do, however, wish I was a hop, skip and a jump away from an ocean/beach and I wish I could get fresh avocados that tasted like the ones I get shipped from California Avocados at my local grocery store.

This past month when I was out of avocados and awaiting my ambassador shipment from the California Avocado Commission, I was craving fresh avocados like crazy. A good friend of mine said “You do realize, they sell avocados at the grocery store, right?” Of course I know they sell avocados, but they don’t sell California avocados… and once you’ve had avocados fresh from the orchard in California, you can’t go back to what they sell here in Kansas stores. It just isn’t the same.

Luckily, there will hopefully always be companies that deliver California avocados straight to your doorstep. If you are in the midwest and want to know what real California avocados taste like, order some up today. Better yet, if you are a neighbor, stop on by… my shipment just arrived and I’d love to share an avocado with you! 

Avocados-3This month, I’m excited to share a recipe with you that is so easy and fresh… it doesn’t require a lot of seasoning or fuss. In fact, the fresh flavors of the grilled vegetables steal the show.

Naturally you can go a little more bold by adding more spices and seasonings, but again, you’ll have to trust me that with just a dab of this and a pinch of that, you’ll have some pretty darn tasty wraps in your hands before you know it.

I hope you enjoy!

  1. I actually didn’t think there was quite a difference about where the avocados come from. I’m going to be thinking about trying California avocadoes until I can get my hands on one,

  2. Why yes, I think I WILL enjoy – and you’re right, you can’t go back when you’ve tasted the real deal ;)

  3. Proper avocados are one of my favourite things about California…the ones we get here just don’t compare. Love the sound of these fajita wraps.

  4. LOVE avocados! Especially when grilled. This is a wrap that I’d happily devour for breakfast, lunch or dinner :)

  5. I just got really really hungry looking at that. Is it time for lunch yet?

  6. I didn’t know you could get them shipped straight to your door, great intel! I can do with out the Kardashians too, but please don’t take away my Real Housewives :)

  7. Give it to me now. Grilled avocados are my kryptonite. I can’t say no.

    Kansas is void of all legitimate large bodies of water. I went swimming in a “lake” there once where I could walk a good 100 feet from shore and the water never reached above my waist. It’s why I could never move there. I’ll take cold winters and more lakes than I can count.

    • We’re pretty pathetic when it comes to anything resembling lakes, I agree. The Ozarks, on the other hand, has some great lakes.

      I don’t want Minnesota winters, but I would love your lakes!

  8. Wow, I want. I mean I buy avocados like crazy…pounds of them at a time and we never have a problem eating them. This looks amazing and now I am going to have avocado toast for breakfast. Thank you!!

  9. It is so hard to find good avocados around here! I buy them anyway because I love them so much but totally wish I had access to fresh California avocados. I love this wrap..avocados for breakfast is a favorite!

  10. Love the idea of grilled avocados! I need to use them more often in cooking. Pinning!

  11. Dying over your avocado photo!! Swoon!! I need these fajitas in my life ASAP.

  12. Reeeeeally jealous you’re a brand ambassador! I want these avocados! Hehe. And the fajitas look just delicious.

  13. These look fantastic! I want 50 right now!! YUM!

  14. My husband would love these! Wait….I would love these!

  15. Oh, I do believe I need to get some avocados delivered to my door. Here in PA, we don’t have Kardashians or avocados, either. Though, I’m with you… The lack of Kardashians is perfectly OK with me.

    And, this fajita wrap looks divine. I’m thinking maybe I need to change my dinner plans for tonight!

  16. That looks all too delicious and wonderful. I’d love to sit and chat with a wrap like that! Well, chat with you while eating a wrap. Phew, glad we cleared that up

  17. Avocados are one of my favorite foods! I can eat them on just about anything! Wanting one of these wraps right now! Yum :)

  18. Jennifer says:

    I made this for dinner tonight, it was delicious! Thanks for helping me with my menu! :-)

  19. I need a grill powerful enough to actually GRILL an avocado – I’m alwyays playing the Mission Impossible song when I grill on mine, cause I’m always trying to grill before the little propane tank runs out! I need these!

  20. Oh, this looks so delicious! I really love fajitas and yours look especially tasty :)
