Chef’s tip: if guacamole isn’t being served right away, reserve bacon and add just before serving so it remains crisp. Also, place plastic wrap directly on top of guacamole to prevent browning.
*Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
As with all fruits and vegetables, wash avocados before cutting. Check out our tips for how to choose and use California Avocados
