Storage and variations for making guacamole: the quick recipe without cooking

This sauce would be best eaten immediately after preparation to prevent it from turning black (avocado has a tendency to blacken). A trick, if you’ve done too much, is to transfer it to a jar, cover it with oil , and keep it in the fridge for a couple of days. Alternatively, create the vacuum inside the container.

To vary, you can also not add chopped tomatoes or enrich with aromatic herbs such as parsley or coriander .

For chilli, we recommend jalapeños , but any variety you find is fine; you can also omit it if you don’t like spicy.
