More About This Recipe
- This fresh guacamole has all the goods: ripe avocados, pico de gallo, a bit of lime or lemon juice, a dash of hot sauce and seasonings. Even better, it’s ready in just 10 minutes! This makes it ideal for whipping up right before guests come over. While you can store guacamole in the refrigerator, it tastes best when it’s fresh. It looks better too! You may have noticed that avocados turn brown when they have been sitting out too long. This doesn’t mean they have gone bad, necessarily—cut avocados turn brown when exposed to air. Though they taste the same, they certainly look less appetizing, especially when you’re trying to impress guests at a party. You can help prevent the browning by covering the guacamole so it doesn’t come in contact with the air. Do this by storing in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve it by placing it in a container with a tight lid, or covering the bowl tightly with plastic wrap.
