Notes
  • Feel free to adjust the seasonings to suit your spice preference.
  • To save time, feel free to make my recipe for guacamole ahead of time. Just be sure to keep it in an airtight container with a piece of cling wrap pressed against the surface of the guacamole to prevent browning from oxidation.
  • Not a fan of chicken? This recipe is equally great with other proteins such as firm tofu, skirt steak or shrimps!
