Notes

  1. You want your avocados to just be slightly ripe, enough to just be able to press in on the skin a little bit and not too firm otherwise they won't mash properly.
  2. You can mash these to your desired thickness, if you like chunkier then don't mash it so much.
  3. We usually use a pastry blender to mash our avocados but a pestal and mortar is something that is commonly used.
  4. You can use this easy guacamole in many different ways, toppings to things, in tacos, as a dip for taquitos etc.
