Securely hold the avocado in one hand and slice lengthwise through the skin and flesh until you reach the pit. Then, gently twist the two halves in opposite directions to separate them. With the pit facing up, tap it lightly with a knife blade until the knife sinks in slightly, then gently twist the knife to remove the pit from the flesh. Next, use a spoon to scoop out the flesh from the skin, or make lengthwise and crosswise cuts with a knife, being careful not to cut through the skin, and then scoop out the diced avocado pieces with a spoon. Finally, transfer the diced avocado to a bowl.
Take a fork or a spoon and press it down on the diced avocado pieces, and then start mashing them until you reach the desired consistency. For a chunky texture, mash the avocado less, and for a smoother texture, mash it more.
Peel the onion using a sharp knife and make thin slices on the cutting board. Add half of the sliced onion to the mashed avocado, and mix well. Reserve the remaining half of the sliced onion for later use.
Tip: To make a simple and delicious guacamole, mix in chopped cilantro, minced garlic, fresh lime juice, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Add these ingredients to the mashed avocado and mix well.
Start by using a sharp knife to cut off the stem and bottom of the bell pepper, then remove the seeds and membrane. Place each half of the bell pepper on the cutting board with the flat side facing down, and slice it into thin strips from top to bottom using a sharp knife.
Combine the remaining half of the sliced onion with the sliced bell pepper in a pan. Add salt, pepper, and olive oil, and toss the ingredients well.
Next, add the minced meat (in this recipe, we have used beef) to the pan and continue cooking until the beef is browned and cooked through and the vegetables are tender-crisp.
After the meat is fully cooked, stir in the tomato sauce and salsa and continue cooking for a few minutes while stirring.
Spread the beef and vegetable mixture onto warm tortillas and add any desired toppings. For this recipe, we used guacamole and shredded Gruyère cheese.
