We make guacamole a lot in my house, it’s one of the few ways I can get Madison to eat avocados. For a crab-less version, you can check out my Best Guacamole Recipe. You may also enjoy Guacamole Deviled Eggs or Breaded Chicken Cutlets with Deconstructed Guacamole.

From the Test Kitchen

Ripe avocados feel soft under gentle palm pressure. (Don’t press them with your finger or they’ll bruise.) To speed ripening, place avocados in a closed paper bag at room temperature. Ripe ones can be refrigerated for several days.

How to make perfect guacamole:

  • The trick is to a good guacamole is leave large chunks of avocado; don’t puree or mash them thoroughly.
  • Having the perfect balance of lime juice, red onion and salt is essential.
  • If you like it spicy, you can certainly add some diced jalapeño, some people also like to add diced tomato which is fine, but we like it just like this!
