Notes

  • Look for large avocados for this recipe. If you can only find small avocados, feel free to add one more!
  • Definitely use fresh limes rather than lime juice in a bottle. The flavor difference is worth it.
  • Make sure to read my tips above for keeping leftover guacamole green and fresh. It's truly amazing! And I store the leftover guacamole in these food storage containers.
