Storage

Guacamole is delicious as a topping for burgers or jacket potatoes and is usually served as an accompaniment to fajitas, along with soured cream. Make it chunky or smooth, according to taste. If you're making guacamole in advance, sprinkle with lemon juice or cover well with cling film because avocado goes brown quite quickly once it’s exposed to the air.
