How to peel and dice an avocado:

  • Rinse the avocado and pat dry with paper towels
  • Run a knife around the circumference of the avocado (lengthwise)
  • Twist both halves of the avocado to release the pit from one side.
  • Tap the pit with your knife with just enough force so the knife becomes lodged in the pit. Tug on the handle of the knife gently while gripping the avocado firmly to release the pit.
  • While the avocado is still in its casing, use your knife to cut the flesh into squares (like a grid)
  • Use a spoon to scoop the flesh from the avocado.

Here are a few add-ins you can try (optional):

  • Garlic 
  • Cilantro 
  • Jalepeños or dried red pepper flakes
  • Diced red onion 
  • Diced tomatoes 
  • Pico de gallo salsa
