Guacamole is a healthy and delicious appetizer, snack, or spread. Learn to choose and cut avocados, then combine them with a lime-based marinade for a delightful balance of flavor. Guacamole is only as good as the avocado that you buy for it. You really want your avocados soft but not too mushy. So that's how you would shop for an avocado. The next thing that you would do is take the pit out. If you're finding that the pits are really not coming out of the avocado, you have an avocado that is not gonna make good guacamole. This is a Mexican food.
