Guacamole tastes best chilled, so refrigerate for about 20 minutes before serving. This time also allows the flavors to meld. Serve with tortilla chips, fresh vegetables, etc.
Guacamole will last for 3 days in the refrigerator. Smooth out the surface of the guacamole and pour on a thin layer of water. Cover the container and store in the fridge. Pour off water and blot dry with a paper towel before serving.
