How to Cut an Avocado

A super easy way to cut an avocado. Fast and gets all of it out! Learned this at a Mexican restaurant and used it ever since!

Have you wondered how to cut an avocado? I learned this method while working at a Mexican restaurant in our town. Before that I just cut different ways attempting to do the best I could. Now, cutting an avocado is something I could do in my sleep and I actually enjoy doing it and want to make guacamole all the time.

You take your ripe avocado and slice it all the way around the pit and twist it apart so it looks like this:

Next, take your knife and carefully hit the pit with part of the blade closer to the handle. Twist the knife while holding the avocado half in the palm of your other hand and the pit will pop out.

Now, take the knife and make diagonal cuts down and across.

Finally, take a spoon and slide it in around the skin and let the avocado pieces fall into a bowl.

If you want to take the avocado out in a complete half, simply don’t make the diagonal slices and simply use the spoon to carefully remove and then slice on a cutting board in your desired shape.

This method is super easy and makes your homemade guacamole come together in minutes!

      Thanks for stopping by! Lol, I’m sure there are other great (or better) ways to cut an avocado but this one works wonderful for me (and is so much better than the way I attempted before working at the Mexican restaurant).
