Proware's Guacamole for a Crowd

Guacamole for a Crowd

My friends and I can’t seem to get enough of guacamole at the moment. Someone brings it to every gathering or get together we have. We have it with tortilla chips, freshly cut vegetables, flat bread, anything really. This recipe can be served as a snack for a group of people or split between a few people as more of a main. BUT Avocados can be expensive, so give your local markets a try as they sometimes have amazing deals. My friends swear by the Moor Market in Sheffield if you’re local. Also a great way to save is to buy them on offer. The avocados I’ve used in this recipe are from the co-op but were reduced and perfectly ripe, bar one which was slightly too far gone.

Another safe bet with avocados, as timing can be tricky, is frozen avocados. Yes, you can freeze avocados! This is fab if you buy a bunch at a market or on offer, just make sure to remove the stone and skin before freezing. Even more exciting is that Tesco stock bags of frozen avocado halves at a pretty reasonable price too. (Quick Tip – these are in with frozen vegetable, not fruit section!) Perfect for keeping in the freezer for your last minute avocado needs. I must admit I’ve even defrosted them slightly in the microwave or in a freezer bag in some warm water, when in a hurry to use them.

This recipe is packed with so much vegetable goodness it’s unbelievable. The seasonal foods for June we’ve used are tomatoes, garlic, red onions and coriander, as well as carrots and courgettes served alongside to dip in the guacamole.

    I love guacamole but have to say I don’t make it as often as I would like as avocados do work out to be quite expensive! I’ll definitely look out for the frozen ones as I’m sure they work out to be much better value. I often find the avocados I get are not quite ripe enough but then I leave them too long and they are overripe!

      Yes, I think you’re right and also for convenience sake too! 🙂

    You really can’t beat a decent bowl of guac in the summer for dipping and dunking – love the stuff!!! Great tip about getting frozen avocados – I had no idea you could get them, so i’ll def be stocking up! Thanks for hooking up with Simple and in Season this month.
