Happy Cinco de Mayo! I don’t know about you, but this holiday is my fast pass to an ice-cold Mexican beer and bowl full of chips and guacamole. I could eat guacamole all day long, everyday, on eggs, sandwiches, salads — you name it and I’ve probably put some smashed avocado on it. But sometimes my fresh avocado hoarding outpaces my appetite and they sadly get rotten and brown. There is nothing more distressing than tossing an avocado past its prime, dreaming about the guacamole that could have been. That is, until I found out that it is EASY to freeze mashed avocados and it really WORKS! Whoohoo, viva la guacamole!
Follow this easy recipe tutorial on How to Make Freezer Guacamole (below) and you can enjoy the creamy goodness of avocados without having to hit to supermarket or shake down a tree. You’ll notice that the “specifics” of the guacamole recipe are vague — that’s because everyone likes to make their a little different. I like lime juice, cilantro and garlic salt in my secret but simple guacamole, maybe a few red onions or pico de gallo on top for garnish. Oh, I also am fond of Hatch green chile guacamole – YUM!
