Crowd-Pleasing Guacamole

This guacamole is an old time party favourite, because it’s not only super tasty, it is also very easy and quick to prepare!

Make sure you use perfectly ripe avocados – when you buy them, press them gently, they should be a little soft from the outside.

Before I let you get on with the recipe, here’s a fun fact: if you plan on making this guacamole a while before serving, keep one of the avocado stone. Popping the stone into the guacamole will prevent it from turning brown!

Similarly, if you are ever planning on using one half of an avocado, use the one which is not attached to the stone, and keep the other one for later – this way the second half of the avocado will keep for longer!
