I love guacamole. But I’m the only one in our house who does.
And guacamole is one of those dishes that is best served fresh. Leftovers just don’t cut it. Because once air hits an avocado (even when it’s mashed up in guacamole), it starts turning brown. The color change doesn’t affect the taste. But it’s not very appetizing. So, I’m faced with eating the whole batch of guacamole, throwing a fiesta or throwing the leftovers away.
But then I stumbled onto an amazing discovery.
You can freeze avocados.
Or better yet, you can make this fresh-from-the-freezer easy guacamole recipe so you always have some on hand, no matter the season.
Slice the avocado in half and remove the pit, leaving the avocado skin intact.
In a separate bowl, mix together the garlic, salt, salsa and a little freshly squeezed lime juice.
Wrap the stuffed avocado tightly in plastic wrap and store in a zip-top bag. Or better yet, use a food vacuum sealer and toss into your freezer.
When you’re ready for a snack, pull your guac-acado out of the freezer and thaw. Mash up the avocado and the other ingredients.
Then dip a chip. (These are some of my favorites!)
