Our Homemade Guac Recipe Tips

  1. Save 1 Avocado seed to add to the dip. This is supposed to help it from turning brown.
  2. When picking up your Guacamole Mix from the grocery store notice on the packaging if it is Hot or Mild.
  3. Roma tomatoes are the best tomatoes for guac. Before dicing your Roma Tomatoes cut them in half and take a melon baller or 1/2 teaspoon and scoop out the seeds.
  4. For spicier guac do not remove jalapeno seeds before chopping.
