Notes

Tips for making great guacamole

  • Make certain avocados are ripe
  • Cut tomato in half and scrape out seeds and watery pulp. This helps make certain the guacamole doesn't become too watery. 
  • Cut tomatoes and onions in a small diced size
  • Use only fresh squeezed lime juice for the best taste
  • Add salt and pepper to taste
  • If making ahead of time, cover with plastic wrap making certain plastic wrap is directly on the surface of the guacamole. Stir before serving.
To freeze guacamole, place in a freezer safe container. Place plastic wrap directly on guacamole and press down lightly. Place lid on container. When ready to use, allow enough time to defrost before using. If a brownish liquid has formed, just pour off. Stir before serving.
