Expert Tips

When buying avocados, choose ones that yield to gentle palm pressure. If the avocados are not ripe, place them in a paper bag with an apple, then pierce the bag in several places and let stand at room temperature a couple of days.

Serve with sweet potato chips and crunchy vegetables, such as zucchini, carrot and celery sticks.
