The best guacamole starts with ripe avocados, but other ingredients often overwhelm their delicate flavor. Tasters liked the flavor of minced garlic in our Chunky Guacamole recipe, but thought raw onions were just too harsh. Instead, scallions lent a mellower onion flavor. Steeping them in lime juice for a few minutes before combining them with the avocados mellowed their flavor even more. To provide some textural contrast to our Chunky Guacamole, we mashed two-thirds of the avocado and roughly chopped the rest.
Makes about 3 cups
Preparing guacamole ahead of time helps the flavors marry, but it should not be prepared more than 1 day in advance. To prevent the dip from turning brown, press a sheet of plastic wrap directly onto the surface and refrigerate until ready to use.
