       Guacamole is one of those perfect foods that is both healthy and delicious. It's easy to make too, so that makes it extra good. This recipe makes a classic guacamole that has great traditional flavor. It should be on a regular rotation at your table.


       There are so many things to love about guacamole. One of the best parts is it is quick to make and requires very few ingredients.

      We love it as a dip for tortilla chips. It id also a perfect topping for enchiladas, burrito bowls, nachos and even chili.

    My sister Chloe is a guacamole aficionado.  So, when she heard that the theme of our girls night was Mexican she knew she had to make some.

    We like our guacamole chunky, so I don't worry about mashing the avocado too much or dicing the other ingredients too fine.  For a smoother guac, just make sure you cut the tomatoes and herbs small and mash the avocado until it's creamy.

   This recipe is a really good one.  Of course you can always start from here and make it your own.  But then, why mess with perfection?

Storing guacamole 


      Guacamole is best served fresh.  The avocado oxidizes easily when in contact with air, so you don't want to make it too far in advance.

     There are a few tips for making your guac last longer though. The first is built into the recipe.

     The acid in the lime juice helps to slow down the oxidation. It also adds that bit of bright and fresh flavor!

      If you don't plan to eat the guacamole immediately after you make it, cover it with the plastic wrap touching the top of the guac. That will reduce the amount of air touching the avocado and slow down the browning. Place the bowl in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

      Some people swear by keeping an avocado pit in the bowl to keep oxidation down. I am not sure if there is science to support this idea, but I'd love to hear your experience.

  5. I LOVE guacamole, and was excited to see your twist on it, and I love the addition of cumin. I will be trying this. I've been curious to try leaving the pit in the bowl, but have had others tell me that it does not work. Still going to try it myself though.
