The two most popular types of avocados are California Haas and Florida Fuerte. Haas avocados have dark bumpy skins while Fuertes avocados have smooth green skins. For best results, use Haas avocados when preparing guacamole.
How to Cut an Avocado
Cut avocados in half from top to bottom using a chef's knife, carefully going around the pit in center. Place the half with the pit, face up, on a cutting board and hit it sharply in the middle with the knife blade. Twist the knife and lift out the pit. Hit the knife on the cutting board. This will cut the pit in half, releasing the pit.
Serve with tortilla chips.
