Since acquiring a molcajete (traditional Mexican mortar & pestle), it’s hard NOT to make guacamole every day. When you buying as many avocados as I do, remember to wait until they’re just about ripe and store them in the refrigerator – they’ll last for 1 to 2 weeks longer. Refrigerating avocados slows the ripening process without altering the flavor or texture. If you don’t finish the whole avocado, wrap it tight in plastic wrap and put it back in the fridge. Now you can buy your avocados days ahead of time without fear of them melting into a green-brown ooze. Use them liberally, don’t be shy – avocados are great on salads, sandwiches, on top of soup, chili or tacos. Don’t forget, you could always bake an egg into the avocado or make some Avocado Ice Cream. Of course there’s always my perfected guacamole recipe, best served on tacos, burgers or with Homemade Tortilla Chips.
