Pick ripe avocados for the Best Guacamole
The best guacamole starts with ripe avocados. Look for avocados that are ripe, but firm. You definitely don’t want soft and mushy avocados.
So how do you pick good, ripe avocados? First, grab avocados that still have the stem attached. If the stem has been removed in the store, it’s more likely to have brown spots on the inside. Then, gently press on one end. It should be firm but have a slight give to it. If it’s as hard as a golf ball, put it back, it’s not ripe yet.
The lime juice, to an extent, mutes the heat of the jalapeno and mellows the garlic slightly. Citrus juices have a positive effect on many foods.
The tortilla chips should be of good quality. Thin, cheap tortilla chips break off in the Guacamole and then you are faced with a possible double-dip situation.

Guacamole goes well with most Mexican/Southwestern dishes. Burritos, Chimichangas, nachos, just about anything you would find in a Mexican restaurant.

Tasty and Easy!
Delicious looking guacamole and very good advice on picking out those avacado’s.
The lime juice also keeps the avocado relatively green. Sometimes I add cumin to mine as well.
