Cinco De Mayo is right around the corner and if you're planning to safely celebrate with family then you definitely need a great guac recipe. Chef Pati Jinich is here to simplify the process and make sure your celebration goes off without a hitch.
Pati says as long as you have ripe avocados, you can't go wrong. Her trusted brand is Avocados from Mexico, which are always ripe and in season, she says. When you're buying your avocados, make a choo-choo-train. Get avocados that are ripe and others that aren't, so you always have some that are ready throughout the week. Unripe ones will be green and hard, while the ripe ones will be soft and the skin will be very dark.
There are hundreds of ways to make guacamole. You can make it extra smooth by placing all the ingredients in the blender or keep it chunky by adding tomatoes or peppers. Everything is to taste and to your own preference, so you can have fun and experiment with flavors. For recipes and more, click here
