Starters & Salads
Traditional GuacamoleNothing says fiesta quite like a delicious bowl of guacamole. Ripe, buttery avocados, mashed with fresh cilantro, bright lemon juice, fiery jalapeños and crunchy white onions is appetizer heaven! Although guacamole is served as a dip with chips in the U.S., south of the boarder, it is more commonly used a sauce spread on taco. Either way you serve it, GOYA® has the perfect recipe for your next party.

How to Halve and Pit an Avocado:
Using a chef’s knife, make a lengthwise cut in the ripe avocado until the knife comes in contact with the pit. Keeping the knife pressed up against the pit, continue cutting around entire perimeter of the avocado. Hold the avocado in both hands; twist in opposite directions to separate avocado halves. Place avocado half with pit onto surface pit side-up. Gently tap the pit with the blade of the knife until wedged into the pit (but does not cut all the way through). Carefully twist the knife to dislodge the pit.
