Why make guacamole? Simply because it has made it a long time back on the list of the best dips and spreads of all times. Needless to say that it pairs well with any Mexican dish if not complementing any Mexican meal per se. Add it to tacos, quesadillas, fajitas, nachos, sandwiches… you name it, and guacamole will be the answer. So, without any further ado, let’s get into details and see how you can prepare this classic and simple guacamole recipe in no time!
Here is why!
You need to look for avocados that started to ripe but are not too soft to an extent that becomes mushy as you hold them. You will not be able to smash hard avocados. Hence, avoid buying hard avocados to make guacamole.
On the other hand, overripe avocados tend to have brown spots. Try to remove the small stem at the top of the avocado. If the stem is stuck, this means that the avocado is still unripe. If it is peeled, check the color underneath. A green color under the stem means this is a ripe avocado. If you find brown color instead, this means avocado that avocado is overripe with potential brown spots inside.
Yes. Guacamole is healthy, big time, and here is why:
Start first by cutting the avocados in half then removing the pit and peeling the skin.
Smash then the avocado with a fork and add the remaining ingredients: garlic, onions, cilantro, tomatoes, salt, pepper, and lime squeeze.
Next, mix to combine all ingredients.
Of course. Here are some suggestions:
– Red pepper instead of tomatoes. Although tomatoes boost the juicy effect in guacamole, substituting tomatoes with diced red pepper takes the flavor to another level.
– Jalapeños: If you are in search of spicy guacamole, then jalapeños is your happy answer.
– Banana peppers: Although they are not available everywhere, they are great contributors to the flavor of every dish.
– Parsley instead of cilantro: This suggestion is dedicated to all the people out there who are not in love with cilantro.
– Serve guacamole dip with nachos as a starter or appetizer
– Add guacamole to the list of dips served with your quesadillas and fajitas
– Use guacamole as a base in your tacos
– Spread it on a slice of toasted bread and top it with eggs and chili flakes.
– Have it with tuna, chicken, or turkey in a sandwich.
– Use it as a salad topping
I won’t be revealing a secret when I say that guacamole, or mainly the avocado within, oxidizes fast and becomes brown. Therefore, I won’t convince you to keep your guacamole for more than 24 to 48 hours maximum in your fridge.
Although adding lime to guacamole will definitely help slow down that process, it won’t push it more than 2 days.
Now to keep your guacamole green, you need to keep it away from air. And the best way to do so is to store it in an air-tight container. However, before closing the container with a lid, place a plastic wrap or a cling film on top of the guacamole to remove any air pockets. Finally, make sure to store the guacamole in the fridge.
