Guac and chips are my favorite foods. Just serve me this as a meal since I’m not looking for anything other than that. Guacamole in restaurants can be expensive, and buying a bottle of ready-made Guacamole from the supermarket is not the best. When that guac craving comes up, I’ll make my batch. Making homemade Guacamole takes less than a few minutes, and the fresh taste is fantastic. In addition, I enjoy making it a topping for every other dish I eat, which means it’s never thrown away.
WHAT ELSE CAN I ADD?
There are plenty of exciting ingredients that you can incorporate into Guacamole. If you’re looking to get more funky with your guac, here’s some ideas:
Garlic (fresh or roast)
HOW TO STORE GUACAMOLE
If you have leftovers, Here’s how to conserve them without Guacamole becoming brown. Guacamole becomes brown in the presence of oxygen, similar to bananas and apples. Therefore, to avoid this, avoid exposure to oxygen. Transfer the Guacamole into an airtight food storage container and then put an additional sheet of wrap onto the surface of the Guacamole. Ensure there aren’t any air bubbles that are trapped in the plastic. Close the container and keep it refrigerated for 4-5 days.
HOW TO USE GUACAMOLE
If you happen to have some leftover guac, Here are a few ways I like to make use of it:
A sandwich or spread ( veggie sandwiches or egg sandwiches)
Toast with scrambled eggs or other toppings
For a salad or bowl dish as a topping
Mixed into deviled eggs
For a garnish for baked potatoes.
To top off Enchiladas or Fajitas
Burgers (beef as well as salmon-based burgers)
One fresh lime (2 Tbsp juice) ($0.89)
2 Roma tomatoes ($0.44)
One jalapeno ($0.09)
1/4 onion red ($0.11)
Two tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro ($0.15)
Three medium avocados (or four small) ($5.00)
1/2 tsp salt ($0.02)
Make the guacamole ingredients first. Make a juice of the lime. Finely chop the jalapeno, tomatoes (remove seeds), and red onion. Cut the cilantro into small pieces.
Take the pits and peels out of the avocados. Set the avocados aside in bowls, then smash them with a fork.
Add the diced tomatoes, onions, and jalapeno to the avocados mashed with the chopped cilantro, approximately one tablespoon lime juice, and 1/4 teaspoon salt.
Mix all the ingredients before tasting the Guacamole. Add salt and lime according to your preference. I usually add approximately two Tbsp of lime juice and about 1/2 teaspoon salt. Enjoy and have fun!
