  2. Add lime juice, cilantro, red onion, jalapeños, and salt and mash well together

How to store guacamole?

Guacamole is best served fresh but if you need to store guacamole in the refrigerator there are a few steps you can take to keep it from turning brown or oxidizing.

  • Seal guacamole with plastic wrap, pressing the plastic firmly onto the surface of the guacamole so that you limit how much air interacts with the top of the guac
  • Sprinkle lime juice on top of the guacamole before covering with plastic wrap
  • Some people swear by putting the avocado pit into the prepared guacamole before covering it with plastic wrap and placing the dip in the refrigerator.
  • Who has leftovers anyway? Just eat all of the avocado goodness and don’t worry about keeping it fresh for another day.

What to eat with this healthy guacamole?

Chips and guacamole are the traditional combo and making homemade tortilla chips will elevate this snack. Learning how to make Chipotle chips recipe is the key. Their lime tortilla chips have that citrus finish that you can’t get out of a bag. Homemade chips are so much better. The lime and salt combination completely comes through and the creamy guacamole is just divine.

How to make homemade lime tortilla chips just like Chipotle chips

  1. Wet your clean fingers in lime juice and wipe across the tortillas. Let them sit out for five to ten minutes while you make the guacamole.
  2. Cut the tortillas into six even triangles.
  3. Heat your oil to 375 degrees. If you don’t have a thermometer, drop one chip in the oil and if it comes to the surface bubbling the temperature is good. Cook for 20-30 seconds, you aren’t looking for them to brown. Remove with slotted spoon.
  4. Sprinkle salt over them immediately.

  1. Hi! First of all, you are my new favorite chef! I have been making a lot of your recipes! Thank-you so much! Secondly, Hass avocados aren’t that big here in New Hampshire. I feel as though I may need to use about 8-10 of them in order to make enough for everyone in my family. Can you possibly tell me how to adjust everything else? In other words, how many cups avocado is actually in 2 large Hass?

    1. That’s so sweet of you to say! I’d say that 2 large Hass avocados is about 2 cups of avocado (maybe 4 smaller ones). You can always buy a bunch of small ones and just keep adding as needed. Enjoy!
