Check out our tips for how to choose and use California Avocados.


  1. Carefully scoop avocado into a medium bowl. Save the avocado skins for serving, if desired.
  2. Mash avocado with all remaining ingredients except paprika. Replace mixture into shells, smoothing down so as to keep avocado shape. Sprinkle with paprika.
  3. Serve with crisp crackers or spread on small slices of toasted bread.

Serving Suggestions:
Garnish with lemon twist and a sprig of parsley and serve with toasted crusty bread or crackers. Or spread on crackers and top each piece with a small cooked shrimp and a strip of (oil-packed) sun-dried tomato, as shown above.

Beverage Pairings:
Delicious with fresh tomato juice or for cocktail hour.

*Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
