If you want to take this recipe beyond three ingredients, you totally can. Some ideas include:
- Add some chopped tomato.
- Add some diced red onion.

- Be sure to use soft avocados. They should give in when you touch them.
💭 How to store leftovers
Store any leftovers in an airtight container or cover with plastic wrap in your fridge. Guacamole will be good for three days after making.
If your guacamole looks brown that is because the avocados have oxidized. Give the guacamole a good stir and it well help it return to a green color.
