Guacamole brings the life to every party.
Pro tip: If making ahead of time or storing leftovers, use an offset spatula or the back of a spoon to evenly smooth the guacamole’s surface. Then, carefully, pour water on top of the surface. Avocados are fat soluble, so the water will not be absorbed, but will create a barrier to air, so the guacamole does not brown. Before serving, pour off the water, and stir.
Also, cilantro stems are edible and carry a lot of flavor. Cut off the bottom inch of the bundle and dispose, but chop the rest to add more flavor.
