Healthy and Delicious Guacamole….Just 4 ingredients for this tasty combination.
There’s nothing better than homemade guacamole! It is delicious, tasty, and healthy too! How often can you match that combination?
Rod’s cousin grows avocados. Every once in a while, he sends us a large box full of avocados! It so exciting to receive a great big box full of these green fruits! There’s only one problem…they all tend to ripen at the same time!
As much as I love avocados, I have a tough time consuming 30 plus avocados in just a couple of days!
Can I freeze guacamole?
Yes, you can freeze guacamole.
On a whim one year, I made bunches and bunches of guacamole and froze it in small containers. I thought, “Well, if it works, it’s worth it, and if it doesn’t I’ll know next time.”
I froze it in 1 cup sized plastic containers. Before putting the lid on, I placed a piece of plastic wrap right on the surface.
A few weeks later, I pulled one out in the morning for dinner…..success! It was awesome! Sometimes there is a bit of brownish liquid on the top. Just pour it off and stir guacamole before serving. Send me some more avocados, dear cousin!
What to serve with guacamole
My favorite way is to eat it with tortilla chips. But I also love to eat it with burritos, tacos, or in guacamole quesadillas!
