For many people guacamole is a favorite recipe. From serving it with chips to putting it on sandwiches to a variety of other options, it has become a recipe staple. But, not all versions are the same.

One of the biggest concerns with guacamole is that you have to eat is fresh. When the enzymes in the avocado get exposed to air, they oxidize. That’s why your guacamole (and avocado) turn brown.

Not only is the color unappetizing, the taste is too. An oxidized avocado can taste bitter. No one wants a bitter avocado.

Since many people are looking to supplement their lifestyle choices with healthy ingredients, avocados have taken over the kitchen. From fiber and potassium to good fats and vitamins, avocados are one of those super foods.

Today, people use avocado in a variety of recipes. From salads to smoothies to even desserts, there is always a reason to add avocados to your shopping list.

Still, many people are drawn to guacamole. Whether you like it spicy, smooth, chunky or mild, there are many ways to adapt this classic dish.
