The ingredients are very basic, but when combined they give this guacamole a tangy, spicy and fresh taste. If you love dips that are packed with flavor, then you will definitely be happy with this recipe!
When is an avocado ripe?
Testing avocados to find a ripe one is actually super easy! Simply take it in your hand and press it lightly. If it has a little give, it is perfect. If it feels too soft, then it might already be overripe.
Storing avocados to keep them fresh
Sometimes, you just don’t find the time to immediately use the avocados you have bought. The sad part about it is that they quickly turn bad. Luckily, there is a way to keep them fresh a lot longer. Just put your ripe avocados in the refrigerator! This keeps them fresh until you find the time to use them (and hopefully make tasty guacamole). You won’t ever waste an avocado again!

As with most recipes, there is a lot of room to modify this guacamole recipe. I found that most people love the recipe as it is, but if you have any special wishes, you can absolutely change the recipe to serve your needs! Here are a few suggestions:
- Skip the cilantro. If you are one of the people that unfortunately taste soap when they are eating cilantro, then you can totally skip it. You can also skip it if you simply don’t like it. This guacamole will still taste super delish!
- Add more jalapeños or substitute with serrano peppers. You can add more jalapeños or use serrano peppers if you want to make this guacamole a bit spicier. Whenever I make this recipe only for myself, I love to use serrano peppers. Just pick what you like most.
- Add more garlic. If you are a garlic lover, then feel free to add more garlic. The amount of garlic in the recipe should be perfect for anyone who likes a bit of garlic, but doesn’t want it to be too present.
Ways to serve guacamole
There are lots of different ways you can serve this guacamole. Here are a few suggestions for you:

- Add to tacos and burritos. All taco lovers out there will agree with me that every taco needs a guacamole. This guacamole is packed with flavor and will enhance the taste of your favorite tacos and burritos.
