Creamy Guacamole, as the name suggests, is perfectly smooth, and chunk-free. I know, I love chunky guacamole, brimming with diced tomatoes, onions, garlic, and cilantro too. However, sometimes I crave the silky consistency of this Creamy Guacamole Recipe. It’s perfect in burritos or served over taquitos and nachos.

Avocado Health Benefits

Avocados have many health benefits. Listed below are just a few of them.

  • Help you maintain healthy cholesterol levels.
  • The Folate in avocados offers protection from certain kinds of cancer.
  • Improved digestion, due to the high fiber content in avocados.
  • Avocados contain high levels of Vitamin K, which helps prevent Osteoporosis.

If you are looking to add more healthy fats to your diet, avocados fit the bill. With their delicious, yet mild flavor, and numerous health benefits, avocados should make a regular appearance in your meals.

How to Pick the Perfect Avocados

Choosing the perfect avocados is the first step to making this Mexican Creamy Guacamole Recipe.

  • First, checking the color of the avocados. If the avocado is green, it’s freshly picked, and still needs to ripen. The color goes from green to dark brown, sometimes with a purplish hue, as the avocado ripens. If you plan on using the avocado right away, pick one that’s darker in color. Also, be sure to skip the avocados with dips or dents, which indicates bruising.
  • Next, give the avocado a gentle squeeze. If there is no give, the avocado is not ripe enough to use. If there is too much give, it’s too ripe. The perfect avocado should yield to slight pressure, yet not be too squishy.
  • Finally, the coolest way to ensure the avocado is ripe is to check under the little nub (what remains from the stem). If the spot underneath is yellow, the avocado is not ripe enough. Brown, on the other hand, indicates the avocado is too ripe. The color you’re looking for is green. Green indicates the avocado is perfectly ripe and ready to be eaten.

  • Happy Mother’s Day, Hilda!
    This is so perfectly times. Yesterday, Steve and I went to a picnic and one of the girls had made guac. I brought some home and my elder son, Joe, mentioned that he preferred guac without chunks. Lo, and behold, your recipe just showed up! 🙂

  • Hi Shala, Happy Mother’s Day to you too! My day started off with an email complaining that guacamole was not an Assyrian recipe ?. So your lovely comment was also timely! Thank you, and I hope you make some creamy guacamole for your son soon!
