Expert Tips

  • Chipotle peppers are smoked and dried jalapeños. You can often find chipotle powder in the spice section of the grocery store.
  • Don’t let a knife slip get in the way of enjoying avocados. Here’s how to cut an avocado safely: Cut in half, and remove pit with spoon. Next, use spoon to separate flesh from skin. Once free from skin, dice avocado as desired, then repeat with other half.
  • Keep raw onions as fresh-tasting and crisp as possible by placing them in a strainer and running them under water for 20 to 30 seconds before using.
