Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    To dice the avocado, cut in half and remove pit. Using large spoon, scoop flesh from skin. Place one half avocado, cut side down, on cutting board. Make two horizontal cuts to make three planks, then cut lengthwise into strips. Turn 90 degrees, and cut again. Repeat with other half of avocado.
  • Tip 2
    Add these toppings for even more flavour: your favourite Old El Paso™ salsa, sliced jalapeño, diced tomato.
