Recipe Notes

Chef Tips: Making Great Guacamole

Ingredients are important when making this guacamole recipe. If you use the best ingredients then your guacamole will turn out for the best.  Although most recipes for guacamole do not call for lemon juice, I add it to aid in preserving the guacamole. Lemon juice is a stronger acid than lime juice and will help keep the guacamole longer. Also when you store the sauce to use another day, store it either with plastic stuck directly on the guacamole or with a layer of water over the top. I also avoid putting tomatoes in my guacamole, tomatoes once ripened and cut up deteriorate fast. Possibly faster than the avocado, so I only put tomato in when I have a plan to use all of the guacamole in a single session.
