Harissa is a North African spicy paste that is typically used in Moroccan dishes for smokiness and spice. You can find it in the speciality food section of your grocery store.<br />2. If you're using a milder chili, then you can leave the seeds and stems in the paste for added smoky flavor.<br />3. You can freeze the avocado mixture or store in a glass jar with a drizzle of olive oil for freshness. The olive oil creates a hermetic seal, keeping the mixture airtight.&nbsp;<br />4. For an easy mashing process, slice the avocado while still in the skin and then scoop out.</li>
