To prepare your avocado, slice lengthwise around the entire pit. Remove the halves and with the “butt” of the knife (the back end) smack the pit and make a twist motion with your hand once the knife is sturdy in the seed. Remove pit and toss.
Remove flesh from avocado and place into a bowl. Mash with a fork and add the spices, lime juice, onion and tomato.
Top with smoked paprika and serve.
Chef’s tip: Feel free to add diced onion, tomatoes, or cilantro if you’d like.
