Guacamole is one of my favorite comfort foods any time of the year. When you make guacamole, use Hass Avocadoes from California. You can identify them by the nearly black, bumpy skin. They are fattier, and have a much richer flavor than Florida avocados which have a smooth green skin.
An easy way to mash avocados for guacamole is to pass them through a roasting rack…just push them through, and you’ll save a ton of time.
