Homemade guacamole is easier than you think! It takes just a few ingredients to turn avocados into a delicious dip to eat with chips or top tacos, burgers and more.
When buying your avocados for a recipe that you’re trying to cook same-day, make sure to lean toward the darker, softer ones. If need be, a quick at-home remedy to ripening them quickly can be found in the kitchen.
Nutrition Tip: Whip up some guacamole for your next Taco Tuesday and reap the benefits from those avocados! This fruit contains fiber for digestion, monounsaturated fat for brain and heart health, and a plethora of vitamins and minerals for your cells.
Pop avocados in the oven at 200F for about 10 minutes, until soft (depending on how hard they were to begin with). Cool them off in the freezer for a few minutes and continue the process.
Pair this dip with chips & salsa or use on the side for a delicious taco night! If you prefer your food on the spicier side, diced jalapenos add the perfect kick. I prefer buying them diced in a jar to save for more future uses.
And for our supertasters who say cilantro tastes like soap, this delicious recipe tastes just as great without the herb. Indulge quickly, as homemade guac only lasts in the refrigerator for 1-2 days, or until it starts browning.
