How To Choose Avocados For Making Guacamole?
Choosing the right avocados for guacamole is crucial for achieving the perfect texture and flavor. Here are some tips on how to select avocados for guacamole:
- Look for ripe avocados. Choose avocados that are ripe but not overripe. Ripe avocados should feel slightly soft when gently pressed but not mushy.
- Check the color. The skin of ripe avocados should be dark green or black, but not brown or yellow. Avoid avocados with large bruises or blemishes.
- Consider the time. If you plan to make guacamole in a few days, choose firmer avocados that will ripen at home. If you need to use them right away, select ripe avocados that are ready to eat.
- The stem trick. Remove the stem at the top of the avocado. If it's green underneath, the avocado is ripe. If it's brown, it's overripe, and if it's still white, it's not yet ripe.
By following these tips, you can ensure that you choose the best avocados for your guacamole, resulting in a delicious and creamy dip.
How Can You Tell If An Avocado Is Ripe?
Two things help you determine if an avocado is ripe.
A bright green avocado is not ready yet. I had to learn this the hard way.
If you go to buy an avocado the day you need to use it, you want it darker in color. Avocado turns a brownish-green color when they are ready and ripe.
In addition to the color, if you squeeze the avocado lightly and it yields to gentle pressure, it is indeed ready!
How do you make Guacamole?
To make this simple & easy guacamole, start by peeling, pitting, and cutting your avocados. And then put them in the bowl.
Using fresh cilantro, remove cilantro leaves from stems.
Now you could use cilantro you find in the seasoning section if that is all you have, but that fresh cilantro is gonna be well worth it!
Add it to your bowl.
Then peel and chop the red onion. Red onion doesn’t take much, so roughly a one-third of a medium-sized onion.
Put that in the bowl as well.
Then dice your tomato. I use one whole medium tomato. Put that in the bowl.
Now add the magic! Seasonings – garlic and salt.
Top off with a squeeze of the juice of the lime over the mixture.
Serve and enjoy!
Now go eat tacos and be merry!
