How to Store Leftover Guacamole:

It doesn’t happen very often that we end up with extra guacamole, but stranger things have happened! Avocados are known for turning brown quickly after being exposed to the air. So how do you keep your guacamole looking green and fresh?

The addition of lime juice in this simple guacamole will help quite a bit. Additionally, when you go to store any leftovers you might have, place the plastic wrap directly on top of the leftover guacamole so that no oxygen is able to get to it.

Another tip I found but have not tested is to pat down the guacamole in the bowl and add a little cold water to the top and place the lid on. When you’re ready to eat the rest of the guacamole, simply drain off the water and stir!

What is needed to make easy guacamole recipe with salsa:

Fresh ingredients make all of the difference in homemade guacamole! Make sure your avocados are ripe. You want them soft enough that you are able to easily mash the avocado, yet firm enough that they aren’t mushy.

When picking out your avocados, try to get ones that have the stem still attached. Cup it in your hand and gently press on one end. There should be a slight give to it.

  • 2-3 ripe avocados (they should be soft to the touch)
  • ½ lime (we are using the juice)
  • garlic salt (I prefer this kind)
  • jarred salsa (like Pace Picante sauce) – about a ¼ cup
  • Chips for serving

    I actually do this . My recipe is just a little different. I call it my lazy mom guac. I just use Tostitos restaurant style salsa and a little salt and pepper. Depending on how many of my kids or if my hubby is home, I use 4 to 6 avocados. No need for the lime unless you just like the taste. Easiest dip ever.
