An avocado a day keeps the doctor away, that is a fact. Or not, I will let you decide. But mash an avocado with a little garlic, pico de gallo, olive oil and a little sea salt and I promise no one, not even the doctor will want to stay away:)
How to Pick a Ripe Avocado:
Generally speaking, you want an avocado that is firm (not hard) but has a little ‘give’. But when it comes to making guacamole, avocados can be a bit softer. If you can’t wait for avocados to ripen on the counter naturally, place them in a paper bag with an apple or banana to speed up the process. Learn how to core and slice an avocado here.
Use Store Bought Pico de Gallo or Homemade!
This easy recipe requires nothing more than tossing chunks of ripe avocado with a little olive oil, garlic and pico de gallo. You can use store bought or my homemade version! Either way your guacamole will be a hit!
