Expert Tips

  • To slice avocado, cut in half and remove pit. Using large spoon, scoop flesh from skin. Place one half avocado cut side down on cutting board. Cut lengthwise into strips. Repeat with other half of avocado.
  • Try a drizzle of hot sauce instead of salsa to add a nice kick to the burrito bowls.
