ôLove is blind - but not the neighbors." -Mexican Proverb
Ah… avocados. I love them and they are best in guacamole with other bright flavors like the tomato and cilantro. You can make it as spicy as you like but I like mine mild so that I can taste all the ingredients.
The avocados should be just right – not too firm and not too soft. If you purchase them firm, place the avocado in a paper bag on the counter and close the top. After a day or so they'll be just right.
The easiest way to dice the avocados is to slice them in half and then cut a grid pattern with your paring knife the size that you want the dice. After you have your grid use a spoon and scoop the diced avocado out of its shell a layer at a time (each layer about as deep as your squares are wide).
