  • When selecting an avocado, make sure it is ripe by gently pressing the skin with your fingers. It should give slightly.
  • When selecting a tomato, make sure it is firm and ripe. Avoid any that are bruised or overly soft.

  • Substitute the avocado with mashed banana. This substitution creates a sweeter guacamole, which may be beneficial for those who prefer a milder taste.
  • Substitute the canned green chili with jalapeno peppers. This substitution creates a spicier guacamole, which may be beneficial for those who prefer a bolder flavor.
