We all need to learn how to cut an avocado at one point or another. Either to make homemade guacamole or as a topping for tortilla soup.

There is a skill on how to cut avocados and even how to peel them! I’ve seen people take the entire avocado and start peeling them like you do an orange. It does take longer to do it and to be able to do that, the avocado must be perfectly ripe.

Following this method for how to cut avocados is very easy and fast:

  • Step 1 – Place the avocado on the palm of your hand or a work surface. Make a lengthwise cut, slicing until the blade hits the pit. Hold the avocado and give it a twist to separate the two halves. They should come right apart.
  • Step 2 – Pick up the half with the pit in it. Carefully whack the knife into the middle of the pit, then twist the pit and lift it out.
  • Step 3 – To remove the fruit from the skin, grab a spoon and slide it between the fruit and the skin. You can cut the avocado in slices or chunks with a knife prior to separating the skin.
