Two years ago for Christmas, my mom got me this avocado slicer. She said it was because she knows I love guacamole so much. I thought it was the most ridiculous thing ever. Who needs a special tool to open an avocado?!

Well, fast forward a few months when I decided to give delicious tacos a try. Let me tell you, now I’m that silly lady who uses a special tool to cut avocados!

Avocado Tacos

It’s not so much the cutting an avocado that I use it for as removing the pit. There’s this tool on the back that is specifically for removing the pit. You just jab it in and pull. The pit comes out in one smooth movement.

No wasting parts of the avocado trying to get the pit out. No struggling to scoop out the pit. When it comes time to cut an avocado, I go over to the drawer with my avocado slicer.

I always think of how ridiculous I thought it was when my mom gave it to me. Don’t worry. I’ve called her to let her know how much I appreciate the thoughtfulness of the gift and that I’m actually using it now!

How to slice avocado for tacos?

Slicing avocado for tacos requires a careful method to ensure perfect slices. Start by cutting the avocado in half lengthwise around the pit. Twist the halves apart and remove the pit. Peel the skin or scoop the avocado out with a spoon. Place the avocado flat on the cutting board and slice it into even pieces.

These slices are perfect for layering in tacos, providing a smooth, buttery texture that complements other ingredients like spicy salsa and tangy cheese.

How to preserve avocado slices?

Use lemon juice or vinegar to preserve avocado slices and keep them green and fresh. After slicing the avocado, gently toss the slices in a mixture of lemon juice, vinegar, and water. This method helps prevent oxidation, which causes the avocado to turn brown.

For longer storage, place the coated avocado slices in an airtight container or wrap them tightly with plastic wrap, ensuring minimal air exposure. This technique is essential for preparing avocado in advance for recipes or keeping leftover avocado slices vibrant for future use.
