Tips for Making the Perfect Guacamole:

  •  Use ripe avocados: The key to making great guacamole is using ripe avocados. Look for avocados that are slightly soft to the touch and give slightly when pressed.
  • Use fresh ingredients: Fresh ingredients will give your guacamole a vibrant flavour and colour.
  • Customize to your taste: If you like your guacamole spicy, add more jalapenos or cayenne pepper. If you prefer a milder flavour, omit the jalapenos altogether.
  • Don’t overmix: Overmixing can lead to a mushy texture, so mix the ingredients just until combined.
  • Cover the dip with plastic wrap: To prevent browning, see different techniques from real simple. I use the water technique to keep the guacamole fresh for a couple of days.

Variations:

  • Chunky Avocado Tomato Guacamole: Add chopped tomatoes to the recipe for an extra burst of flavour.
  • Creamy Avocado Guacamole: Add a dollop of sour cream or Greek yogurt to the recipe for a creamier texture.
