What is guacamole?

Guacamole is a Mexican dip or spread made with mashed avocado, lime juice, cilantro, onion, and salt. It’s usually served with tortilla chips, or used as a topping for nachos, quesadillas, enchiladas, burritos, salad bowls, and more.

How to make guacamole

While guacamole recipes are as varied as they come (as evidenced by our extensive list here), most recipes start with avocado, cilantro, and lime juice. Jalapenos and chopped onions are also a given, as is a pinch of salt. From there, the ingredient blends are truly endless. You can add tomatoes, corn, beans, cheese, garlic, radishes, and anything else your heart desires!

How do you keep guacamole from turning brown?

There’s nothing more disappointing than making a huge batch of guacamole for a Cinco de Mayo party or Taco Tuesday and turning them brown for a few hours. To prevent this from happening, try this trick when you’re ready to stock up on leftover guac: pat dip into a flat, even layer, and then squeeze lemon or lime juice over it. Cover it with plastic wrap (it touches directly to the jack) and it will be nice and green when you go eat it again!
