LOS ANGELES -- Dodger fans here were the first to try an exclusive new twist on a classic favorite last Friday when the Chilean Avocado Importers Association (CAIA) debuted a gourmet avocado topping for the world-famous "Dodger Dog."
Chilean Hass avocado "ambassadors" were on hand at Dodger Stadium concession stands to provide a free topping made from fresh avocados to celebrate the beginning of Chilean Hass avocado season in the United States. (Story continues below.)
"The 'AvoDog' is a very popular food in Chile," said Jorge Covarrubias, chairman of CAIA. "We hope that this easy-to-enjoy recipe and the avocado's year-round availability make this delicious hot dog topping a 'home run' in the United States, too."
The recipe includes diced Chilean Hass avocados mixed with lime juice, diced tomatoes, and salt, with optional onion and seasonings.
The first shipment of Hass avocados arrives in the United States from Chile this week -- just in time for the topping to make its debut as the ideal baseball playoff season party food.
