how to make guacamole

Now, in a molcajete, place your avocado and lime juice. Smash until smooth and there aren’t any large lumps. Add the chopped cilantro and red onions. Mix in with a spoon and serve!

You can transfer this to a new bowl, or keep it in the molcajete.

how to store guacamole

This is something I know a lot about. I also tend to make a little too much and always need to store it.

Transfer the dip into an airtight container and place in the fridge. I personally wouldn’t eat it after a day or two. So, just keep a check on it!

expert tips:

  • Use fresh everything! I promise this will make the dip so much better than anything you could buy.
  • Make sure your avocado is ripe! You can tell by the dark brown exterior and when applying just a little pressure, the avocado should give slightly. Don’t press too hard! If the avocado doesn’t give with just a little pressure, then it’s probably not ripe yet.
  • To get the most juice out of your lime, place the lime under the palm of your hand and roll it onto the counter while applying pressure.
  • You don’t need a citrus juicer to extract the juice from the lime. You can actually use a fork if you twist it and squeeze the like slightly at the same time.
  • That being said, you also don’t need a molcajete. It makes things easier but you can use a potato masher or a fork.
  • Don’t panic if you can’t get all the stems off the leaves! A lot of the cilantro flavor actually comes from the stems.
  • Speaking of cilantro, 1 cup of cilantro leaves are equal to 1/4 cup chopped.
