Avocado Egg Rolls go great with Mexican meals ,or just other appetizers. Some of my favorite pairings are deep Fried Mac and Cheese, or Honey Walnut Shrimp. They also makes a great snack on their own.

HOW DO YOU PROPERLY CUT AN AVOCADO?
The best way to cut an avocado is to slice it vertically (long ways) until you feel the pit. Once the avocado is opened ,take the pit out with your knife.
Then, scoop the flesh out of the skin by placing a spoon between the skin and the flesh. This works well for this recipe ,or guacamole. You can also slice it while still in the skin for recipes like taco soup or burgers.
