Homemade guacamole involves nothing more than mashing together a handful of ingredients, and the flavor is far superior to the shelf-stable glop in the supermarket. Serve your fresh guac with some chips and salsa, and you’ve got yourself an instant party. It’s also a delicious accompaniment to quesadillas or fajitas.
What to buy: Look for avocados that give slightly when pressed but are not completely soft. We used Hass avocados.
