Expert Tips

  • If you want to make a smaller batch of Guacamole with Queso Fresco, use the entire can of chiles, but use about half of each remaining ingredient.
  • To keep guacamole from browning in the refrigerator, press plastic wrap directly onto its surface, preventing exposure to the air. Stir before serving.
  • For a little heat, add one medium jalapeño or serrano pepper. Remove seeds and membranes from the pepper, finely chop, then stir the pepper into the dip. Or instead, thinly slice the pepper and place it on top of the dip.
