    Quick tips about this homemade guacamole recipe

    • Cutting an avocado can sometimes be a little tricky. I like to use an avocado peeler to make it simpler! I especially like to use one if I’m doubling the recipe for a big get-together.
    • There are so many ways to enjoy this homemade guacamole! Try serving with sliced veggies or tortilla chips, add to my delicious 7 layer dip recipe or even just use it as a topping for a Mexican style meal. Some of my favorites are my one pot burrito bowls, sheet pan chicken fajitas, green chile chicken enchiladas and Mexican salad.
    • You can easily modify this homemade guacamole based on your preference. Like a little spice? Try adding in some cumin, chili powder or even some chopped jalapenos. Depending on what I have on hand, sometimes I’ll add in some roasted corn or even some black beans.
    • Every once in awhile I’ll modify the texture of this homemade guacamole recipe. Instead of mashing the avocado, I’ll chop the avocado into 1 inch pieces and mix everything together. This makes it more of a chunky guacamole and is a fun variation!
    • To keep the guacamole from browning, I like to add the avocado pits on top of the guac, cover tightly with saran wrap and refrigerate. Once it’s ready to eat, remove saran wrap & pits and enjoy!
    • This homemade guacamole is best served the first day.
