Expert Tips & Tricks
The biggest tip to making the best homemade guacamole is to use ripe avocados. Here is how to tell if an avocado is ripe.
Skin: the skin of a ripe avocado is dark green but not yet brown or black.
Texture: is the skin completely smooth or completely bumpy? Ripe avocados have a few bumps on their skin.
Firmness: squeeze the avocado. If it is slightly soft, then it is ripe. If it is too hard and does not yield to your touch, it is not yet ripe. Lastly, if it is very soft, then it is too ripe.
Chop onions finely before adding to the mixing bowl.
When storing, add an avocado pit to the airtight container. This helps preserve freshness in the fridge.
