How To Make Guacamole

If you’re anything like the majority of Americans these days, guacamole has made its way into your regular diet in one way or another. Whether it’s your appetizer out to eat, spread on a burger or used a dip for a veggie tray, we can’t help but love this tangy, spicy green gloop. If you’re anything like us, you’ve become a bit of a guacamole connoisseur over the years which means being able to spot the unauthentic stuff a mile away. If it doesn’t have big, yummy pieces of tomato, onion, avocado and pepper, it just ain’t the best stuff. Something else to note: guacamole should be full of color and texture and should never, under any circumstances be pureed. Each little bite should be a fun surprise of all the best flavors Latino cuisine has to offer.

That’s why we’ve thrown together this online culinary class to teach everyone the correct and authentic way to make delicious guacamole. Next time try it as a delicious chili topper, sandwich spread or veggie dip for tons of health filled flavor.
