Easy Guacamole Recipe

    authentic and easy guacamole recipe

    This easy guacamole recipe only takes 10 minutes to prepare. (Or less with our secret tip.) Perfect for a Game Day dip, fiesta dinner, taco bar party or any time you enjoy a Mexican meal.

    How to choose an avocado.

    • when choosing an avocado, make sure it still has the stem on it – this means it hasn’t been man-handled & bruised
    • if you want one to use in a recipe right away, choose one with dark skin that gives a little when you squeeze it
    • a green avocado will ripen at room temperature in 4 – 5 days

    How to store an avocado.

    • if you have a green avocado that you want to speed up the ripening process, put it in a paper bag with a banana – the gases from the ripening banana will help the avocado to ripen
    • If you want to slow the ripening of a dark avocado, put it in the fridge for 2 – 3 days
    • store half an avocado in the fridge without the pit, either by covering it with cling wrap (even in the divot from the pit), or placing it face down in a container with a little water

    Tip for super easy guacamole recipe: If you made some pico de gallo for your fiesta, use 1/2 cup instead of chopping more tomatoes & onions. Save that hand for eating!
