Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Coriander (seeds from cilantro plants) and cumin can be purchased as whole seeds. For more flavour, try dry toasting them in a skillet for 3 to 4 minutes over medium heat and then grinding them in a coffee bean or nut grinder.
  • Tip 2
    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.
