How To Make Guacamole
You’ll need 4 nice large avocados perfectly ripe. You should be able to press your thumb slightly into the avocado. Not too much or then it could be browned. Once you get the hang of it, you’ll be a pro! Go to your produce section and look for Anaheim peppers and Pasilla peppers. They should be close to each other. These are the magic ingredient to my guac.

How To Pick The Best Avocados
- When comparing a group of fresh avocados, check the outside color of the skin of the avocados for any that are darker in color than the others. These may be riper than fresh avocados with lighter skin. Check the outer skin of the avocado for any large indentations as this may be a sign that the fruit has been bruised.
- Place the avocado in the palm of your hand.
- Gently squeeze without applying your fingertips as this can cause bruising and check the firmness of the avocado. See tips below for checking ripeness using “feel”.
How Do You Know When An Avocado Is Ready To Eat?
If the avocado yields to firm gentle pressure you know it’s ripe and ready-to-eat. Ripe, ready to eat avocados may have a darker color but color can vary so it is best to go by feel as well as color. It will feel lightly soft but it will not feel “mushy” to the touch. Ripe fruit is perfect for that day. Store in the refrigerator if you plan to eat it in a day or two to prevent the fruit from becoming overripe or spoiled.
Place all 4 of your avocados into a large mixing bowl and let’s get started!
A little kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper please!
