Ingredients

  • 12 avocados
  • 68 garlic cloves, finely minced
  • 3 tbsp lime juice, fresh or bottled
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 13 tsp salt

Instructions

  1. Wash, cut, pit and peel avocados.
  2. Dice avocados and transfer to large bowl.

  4. Sprinkle avocados with salt, lime juice and olive oil (use the code STEWARDSHIP for 10% off at that site!).
  5. Mash everything together with a potato masher or fork until mostly smooth (some chunks are fine).
  6. If using freezer bags, fill bag with about 1 1/2 cups of guacamole. Squeeze air out, zip bag shut, flatten and place in the freezer on a cookie sheet.
  7. If using mason jars or other freezer container, fill with about 1 1/2 cups guacamole and smooth the surface to make it even. Cover with a thin layer of olive oil to prevent browning.
  8. To use, thaw the guacamole overnight in the fridge. To speed up thawing, place bag/jar/container in cool to room temperature water for about 30 minutes.
  9. Transfer guacamole to serving bowl and mix well.
  10. If desired, chopped cilantro, jalapeƱo peppers, tomatoes or onions can be added just before serving.
