Are you ready for some FOOTBALL? I hear there’s a BIG GAME coming up. Maybe you’re into that sort of thing. Or maybe you’re just into the party (food). Either way this Spicy Beer Battered Po’ Boy Sandwich with Avocado Crema should be on your menu.
We’ve put our own spin on this classic sandwich and we’re pretty pleased with the results. No matter which team you’re rooting for, if you love avocados as much as we do, this recipe will be a touchdown.
What are the benefits of avocados?
Avocados From Mexico are worth including because they’re healthy, delicious, always in season and they’re VERSATILE.
Not only are these spicy shrimp po’ boys topped with slices of fresh Avocados From Mexico, we also included mashed avocados in our avocado crema. We opted for a crema instead of a traditional remoulade sauce and we think it works beautifully with the Creole seasoned beer battered shrimp.
Because spice is a theme throughout this sandwich, the avocado crema has a little kick to it as well. Spice is nice.
Our spice comes in the form of TABASCO® Sauce. The iconic bottle we all know and love. Did you know that TABASCO® Sauce is made using three simple ingredients: red peppers, salt and vinegar? That’s it.
It can be used as a condiment or an ingredient to flavor your world. Options, you know how much we love them.
