This Best Guacamole Ever is simple, healthy and sure to be a crowd pleaser! Serve it as a dip with tortillas chips or along side tacos, fajitas, quesadillas, avocado toast and whatever else you could think of. The possibilities are endless.
For ingredients, using ripe avocados is key. The skin should be black. When you squeeze it, it should give. If your avocados are green and hard, leave them out on the counter for a few days and allow them to ripen. Then you need to finely dice the red onion and jalapeño. That will help distribute them throughout the guacamole. And who wants to eat a big chunk of raw onion or jalapeño? If you’re not into spice, then you could leave the jalapeño out, but I don’t recommend doing that. This is Mexican guacamole and spicy is everything in Mexican cuisine.

HOW DO YOU MAKE GUACAMOLE LAST LONGER?
According to Epicurious, there are 5 tested and proven methods that work to help make your guacamole stay fresh.
First, you can seal it firmly with plastic wrap.
The second method is to add in a lot of extra lime juice before sealing it tightly with saran wrap.
The third way to keep it fresh is to sprinkle lime juice over the top of the guacamole, put the pit of the avocado into the center of the guacamole and then seal it with plastic wrap.
Tip number four is to press olive oil onto the top of the plastic wrap and then firmly seal the plastic wrap over guacamole.
The last tip is to sprinkle a little water over the top of the guacamole after you have pat it down. Firmly seal the plastic wrap over it and you will have fresh green guacamole and not brown!
