Tips + Variations
- Pick the perfect avocado: Grab an avocado and squeeze lightly. It should feel a little soft. If it’s too firm, soft or mushy, they’re not ripe.
- The riper the avocado, the better! If your avocado is not fully ripe, leave it on the counter for 4-5 days and check it daily. When the skin turns dark green to black and has a bumpy texture, it deforms under pressure when squeezed – and you’re good to go!
- If your avocado is ripe but you are not ready to use it, It is best to store it in the refrigerator for 2-3 days rather than leaving it on the counter.
- Make your chopped onions milder Rinse briefly in water and drain thoroughly before adding it to the avocado
- If the jalapeno is too spicy Because you tried substituting serrano peppers.
- fresh lime juice It’s always best when making delicious guacamole.
It goes without saying that fries and guava are the perfect combination – why not try one of our easy recipes to make your own homemade fries!
Customize your guacamole:
- Add extra chopped jalapenos or serranos to make it even spicier!
- Add sour cream for a smoother, creamier guava.
- Add fruits like pomegranates, peaches, mangoes, pineapples, and even berries to your guac.
- Add chopped walnuts, toasted almonds, or pepitas (roasted pumpkin seeds) if you like.
Homemade guacamole usually lasts up to 2 daysYou’ll know it’s spoiled when you see a puddle of brown liquid and the layers below the surface have lost their vibrant green color.
There are a few ways to store and keep guacamole tasting fresh.One of my favorite methods is shop Place the guacamole in a container, pat it flat to a flat surface, apply a layer of water on top, and seal with plastic wrap. Keep it in the refrigerator until ready to serve again. When you’re ready to start soaking, dump the water on top. It may seem odd, but it works!
not suggested freeze Guacamole – usually becomes grainy and dry after thawing.
