Guacamole To Go

Guacamole is always a huge crowd pleaser at parties. But it doesn’t travel well because of avocado’s propensity to turn brown. You can cover it carefully/add a bunch of acid, etc. to try to prevent this. My solution – make it ahead, but add the avocados at the last minute while you’re at the party so that it’s super fresh. As long as the hostess doesn’t mind lending you a fork, a knife and some counter space, you’re golden. I bring my own bowl (and even my own salt because I prefer to use kosher).

I have been preferring guacamole without tomato lately, but you could always add some if that’s your thing.


2 shallots, minced

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 scallions, chopped

1 jalapeno, seeded and minced

1/2 cup cilantro, chopped

2 tbsp salsa verde (optional)

six avocados, whole

1 lime

kosher salt, to taste

Combine all ingredients except lime, avocado and salt. Store in a tupperware container.

At party, add avocados to bowl. Add tupperware ingredients and mix with a fork. Season to salt with taste. Add desired amount of lime juice (I used 1/2 to 1 lime here. Bring another lime if you like your guacamole citrus-y).
