Just a reminder – if you’re thinking of going all guacamoly for Cinco de Mayo – buy those Hass avocados today, to have the best chance of them being ripe enough. Look for dark green skin, and a slight give to light pressure. If you can’t find any that are ready you can buy slightly underripe ones and store in a brown paper bag.
While you’re at it, pick up some cilantro, green onions, red onion, limes and jalapeno or serrano peppers for the guacamole recipe I’ll post in two days.
But if you don’t have ripe avocados, don’t even bother with the guac. Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín would want it that way.
