Expert Tips

  • Serve fresh lime wedges alongside the tacos for an additional hit of citrus.
  • To dice the avocado, cut it in half, then remove the pit. Using a large spoon, scoop the flesh from the skin. Place one avocado half cut-side down on a cutting board, then make two horizontal cuts to make three planks. Cut the planks lengthwise into strips. Turn 90 degrees, and cut again. Repeat with the other avocado half.
