Guacamole is a healthy dip – a staple at every gathering and a must when we have taco nights!

How to make perfect guacamole:

  • Start with perfectly ripe avocados. If it’s too hard, or over-ripe, the results will be less than stellar.
  • 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!

Tips For Making Guacamole Ahead:

  • Guacamole really is best when made fresh.  But, if need to make it a little ahead of time, put the pits in the bowl with it, along with some cut up lime wedges and cover it tightly with plastic wrap on the surface of the guacamole.
  • Adding extra lime juice help prevent browning.
  • I recommend making it the same day, but if you must this should keep 1 or two days. If the top browns, scrape the top and the rest should be green.

Is Guacamole Healthy?

Avocados may be high in fat, but they have the good essential healthy fats which we should consume every day. They are also high in fiber, rich in vitamin B, E and K and have 60 percent more potassium than bananas. I love avocado so much I created an entire Avocado Obsessed Pinterest board in their honor.

What to serve with Guacamole

Guacamole is great with baked tortilla chips, lentil chips, baked plantain chips, chicken fajitas, or even on a wrap in place of mayonnaise. Sometimes we even make guacamole turkey burgers.
