Ever since I can remember, I have always loved avocados. So when I went to Chile and found out that avocado (la palta) is a staple in their diet, of course I was overly excited!
In Chile, "once" (pronounced: awhn.sé) is dinner and it typically consists of bread, an avocado spread, and tea. "Once" is a small meal because lunch is usually the largest meal of the day and it is eaten around 3.
Although Pan y Palta is usually eaten at "once," the beauty of it is that it can be eaten at any time of the day! I frequently eat it for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
The ingredients for Pan y Palta is exactly that; bread, avocado, and maybe a little bit of salt. It is best served alongside a cup of hot tea.
Step 1:Cut open the avocado, take out the seed, dig out the green part using a spoon, and mash it in a little bowl using a fork.
Step 2:Spread the mashed avocado on the bread. Salt to taste.

Que te vaya bien!
