Notes

Nutrition facts do not include the garnishes or tortilla chips.
To store leftover guacamole in the refrigerator, follow these steps:
  1. In a bowl with a tight-fitting lid, pat down the guacamole with a spoon to remove any air bubbles.
  2. Drizzle about 1/2 and inch of lukewarm water on top of the guacamole.
  3. Put the lid on and refrigerate for up to 3 days.
  4. When ready to eat, pour off the water from the top of the guacamole.
  5. Stir well and enjoy.
