Expert Tips

  • To dice avocado: Cut avocado lengthwise through skin and flesh around pit. With hands, slowly twist both sides of avocado to separate. Gently slide spoon under pit to remove. With knife, make crisscross cuts through flesh; remove with spoon into bowl.
  • When using bacon as a garnish as in this recipe, seek out the best quality bacon you can find. It really makes a big difference in the finished dish.
