The Fastest Way to Dice Avocados for a Crowd
Making a big batch of guacamole? Use this shortcut.
The key to our Classic Guacamole is to first dice three ripe avocados into ½ inch pieces and then mash them with a whisk for the perfect combination of chunky and smooth consistencies. But if you're making guacamole for a crowd, that dicing step can prove tedious. We wondered if there was a faster way to either dice or partially mash (but not completely pulverize) a big batch of avocados. We tried an array of kitchen implements: potato masher, wire cooling rack, large spoon, mortar and pestle, and pastry cutter.
