2 medium to large size ripe avocados

  • In the bowl, mash the 2 avocados with a masher or a fork.
  • Add the juice from the lime and the salt.
  • Finely chop the red onion and add it to the mixture. If you’d like, you can also add a bit of finely chopped tomatoes to add some color and texture.

Guacamole Storage instructions

There are many suggestions floating around the internet on how store your guac. I have tried many of them, from adding a layer of olive oil on top of the guac to keeping the avocado pit in the guac. I have even heard keeping a quarter of the red onion on top of the guac slows down the process of oxidization (this is what turns guac brown within 0.2 seconds.) What has worked best for me is emptying the guac into a Tupperware, keeping the pit in there, sealing the container tightly and placing that Tupperware in a tightly sealed Ziploc bag. The guac gets slightly brown the next day but it definitely gets the job done better than other methods I’ve tried.
You can also use a olive oil sprayer and spray a light coat on top of the guac as additional protection.
