Expert Tips

Here's an easy way to chop an avocado. After cutting the avocado into halves and removing the pit, chopped it right in the peel. Use the tip of the knife blade to score the avocado halves in a crisscross pattern, cutting just to the peel. Run a small spoon next to the peel, rotating the avocado and squeezing slightly to release the chopped fruit.
