What Is The Primary Ingredient Of The Best Guacamole?

When it comes down to making homemade guacamole, the best guacamole ingredients can vary. You may have a specific seasoning you want to use, or you might want to add some vegetables to your dish.

Regardless of what you add, one thing will remain the same, and that is the use of avocados. To enhance the flavor of the guacamole using raw onions, choose either red or white onions.

Throw in some diced pickled jalapeños and some chopped tomatoes, and you got yourself a great guacamole recipe to go with some tasty tacos.

How Do You Pick An Avocado For Guacamole?

Use the avocados that are soft but still have a firmness to them. You want the avocado to be ripe, but not too ripe to where the avocado is starting to spoil.

How Ripe Should Avocado Be For Guacamole?

The avocado should be ripe enough that you can easily scoop it out of the skin with a spoon. You should also be able to make your homemade guacamole without a blender.

If you can’t do that, then the avocado isn’t ripe enough. On the flip side, the avocado will still be bright green.

If the avocado is turning brown or the avocado feels extremely soft, then you need to use them immediately.

How Do You Make Guacamole From Scratch?

It is taco Tuesssssdayyyyyyyyy and you have your tasty tacos ready, but you need something to go with it. This is where the guacamole comes in.

To make homemade guacamole from scratch, you will need your avocados. Most recipes consist of something acidic like lime juice.

Whether you want to add seasoning and/or vegetables will be up to you. Raw onions, pickled jalapeños, and tomatoes are good guacamole ingredients to use.

How Do You Make Guacamole So It Doesn’t Turn Brown?

There is no real way to prevent even the best guacamole from going brown, but you can slow down the process. You can do this by covering the guacamole with a layer of water.

Sounds weird, I know, but with this method, you can have your guacamole keep its green color without affecting the flavor.

When you’re ready to serve your homemade guacamole, gently pour the water off and then stir it.

What To Add To Guacamole To Make It Taste Better?

You can add salt, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, cilantro, etc. For vegetables, you can add raw onions, tomatoes, and pickled jalapeños.

If you want to get experimental, you can add sliced carrots or any other green vegetable.

What do you serve with guacamole?

Homemade guacamole can be served with multiple foods. Nachos, Quesadillas, and tasty tacos.

Whether you are eating chicken, beef, or pork tacos, guacamole will go great with your meal.

What Kind Of Onion Is Best For Guacamole?

White raw onions are great to use, but red onions are also a good choice. Add your guacamole ingredients to pork tacos and watch your taste buds experience an exhilarating feeling.

Should Guacamole Be Spicy?

Using guacamole ingredients that will make your homemade guacamole spicy is an option. The best guacamole I ever had used pickled jalapeños.

While eating your guacamole with some tasty tacos, I recommend adding a little spiciness to it. If you want to take the spiciness to another level, then add some cayenne pepper.

It is easy to overdo it on the cayenne pepper, so don’t put too much in your guacamole.

What Does Homemade Guacamole Go With?

Some of the best homemade guacamole can go with almost anything. Tasty tacos, seafood, BBQ, fries, etc.

Don’t judge me for this, but one day I had some pepperoni pizza and some guacamole.

You can probably guess what happened next. Just know that I was experimenting that day, but to my surprise, pizza and guacamole is a pretty good combination.
