Why you should never buy ready-made guacamole

Do you love guacamole? Do you buy it from the grocery store?

If you currently buy your guac ready-made, you need to stop. Why? Here are three reasons:

1: It’s Incredibly Easy To Make Homemade

Homemade guacamole is as easy as mashing avocados and adding in some fresh ingredients. This is one food item that anyone can make. There’s no need to buy it ready-made from the grocery store.

See below for an incredibly delicious, foolproof, impress-your-friends guacamole recipe.

2: It Tastes Funny

Some store-bought guacamole brands have a certain taste to them – and I’m not talking about salty or sour.

I can’t put my finger on it. But if you want fresh, pure, non-chemical-tasting guacamole – don’t buy it at the store. Make it at home.

(One exception is Whole Foods store-made guacamole. It is delicious and doesn’t have that chemical taste. But it’s very expensive. (See reason #3))

Should you buy ready-made guacamole or make it yourself?

3: It’s Expensive

Homemade guacamole from the grocery store is really expensive.

You can make a delicious homemade guac for much, much less than it costs to buy it in the store.

When avocados are ripe, grocery stores sell them very cheap. I often find 5 for $5.00 deals, or even cheaper:

Forget paying $5.00+ on a small container of store-bought guacamole. Make a much larger batch at home for just a few dollars.

Guacamole is one of the most perfect foods. It’s creamy, it’s flavorful, and it’s healthy.

It’s a tortilla chip’s best friend. It can make a burger. And it is always a welcome site at a Superbowl/Cinco de Mayo/Fourth of July/any other party.
