National Spicy Guacamole Day, In the News, and Enjoy

National Spicy Guacamole Day - Today is National Spicy Guacamole Day.

Show your true green colors and good taste with avocados. Avocados are the choice of professional chefs and guacamole connoisseurs. Serve them proudly throughout the day and for the remaining 363 days for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and more.

Avocado and Guacamole Tips
Select avocados that yield to gentle pressure when you squeeze them in the palm of your hand. Or if you’re planning ahead for your celebration, look for avocados that are firm to the touch. They will ripen naturally in four to five days. You can speed up the process by placing them in a brown paper bag with an apple or banana and store at room temperature.

Slice avocados lengthwise (cutting around the seed) and twist to separate into two halves. Use a spoon to gently remove the seed.

Keep unused avocado or your celebration guacamole from oxidizing by adding lime or lemon juice. Store in an air-tight container or wrap tightly in clear plastic wrap to limit the surface area exposed to the air.

Tortilla chips are traditional, but you do not have to be. Serve your guacamole with crisp sliced vegetables. Use it as a sandwich spread. Top a burger with a dollop of guacamole. Dress up grilled fish, chicken, or pork. Add a dash to an omelet. Your guacamole adventure is limited only by your imagination!
