How do you make guacamole?

A simple, authentic guacamole recipe will have you preparing these basic ingredients: ripe avocado, onion, tomato, garlic, lime, salt, and pepper.

Over the years, people on the hunt for the best guacamole dip recipe have added other stuff such as coriander, mayonnaise, peas, squash, sour cream, or forms of preservative.

Others skipped the tomatoes or the onions entirely.

If you want your ripe avocados to shine and truly take the spotlight, make three-ingredient guacamole that involves only avocado, lime, and salt.

Make guacamole by mashing your chopped and measured ingredients together to form that delightfully familiar chip dip.

How to make guacamole not go brown

Oxidation makes your guacamole turn brown almost instantly.

If you follow the classic recipe, the addition of lime juice will help slow down the process and will aid in keeping your guacamole green. 

A sure way to help your guacamole not turn brown is by storing it in a tight-lid container, and then before covering it, you need to place a plastic food wrap on top.

Pat the wrap neatly so that it covers and sticks to the guacamole entirely. After that, place the lid back and store it in the fridge.
