Guacamole Tips and Tricks: Because You Deserve the Best

Alright, folks, here are some pro tips to make sure your guac is always on point:

  • Keep it Green: To prevent browning, press plastic wrap directly onto the surface of the guac before refrigerating. The lime juice also helps with this.
  • Ripe Avocados: Make sure your avocados are perfectly ripe. They should give a little when you squeeze them but not be mushy. If they feel like a rock, they ain’t ready yet.
  • Customization: Dont be afraid to experiment with flavors. Add ingredients like roasted corn, pineapple, or even blue cheese for a unique twist.
  • Fresh Ingredients: Always use fresh, high-quality ingredients. It makes a huge difference in the flavor.
  • Serving: Serve guacamole with a variety of dippers not just tortilla chips. Think sliced veggies, pita bread, or even as a topping for grilled chicken or fish.
