Guacamole is a staple in our house. It's the best Taco Tuesday accompaniment as well as a great weekend snack watching the games. Not to mention it's healthy too! Living in San Diego for a few years, I learned a few tricks that I've adapted to make some pretty kick-ass guacamole. More importantly, how to keep your guacamole looking fresh for days.
There's no bigger turnoff than seeing brown guacamole in a bowl at a house party. There's a really easy way to keep your guacamole fresh for not just a couple hours, but made days in advance. For instance, we made of Guacamole today for the game on Sunday.
Quality check? Totally good. In fact, the way we do this, the acid from the lime and spice from the onion and jalapeño get absorbed into the avocado and really give you the best tasting and looking guacamole you'll have this weekend and for many weekends to come.
What's the secret? A vacuum sealer (ziplock bag works fine too). Keep the oxygen out of the guac. All of it. Make this simple recipe below and vacuum seal it and you'll have an easy pull, cut and squeeze to guacamole perfection.
Guacamole (Serves 1-10 guests)
6 ea avocados ("diced" in skin(see photo))
3 ea fresh limes, juiced
1/2 ea bunch cilantro, chopped fine
1/4 ea red onion, diced small

2. Take half of the guacamole and put into a vacuum saver bag and seal it. Repeat with second half. Refrigerate for up to 4 days without losing any quality.

4. Toss some bread on your hot Baking Steel and make some guacamole toast, thank me by commenting below.
