So how do you check if your avocado is ripe enough for guacamole?
Very ripe avocados have brown skin. Very bright green skinned ones are not ripe and not ready to be used.
So you need the perfect ripe avocados which are not overly ripe nor under ripe ( in my experience I have found that overripe avocados works for guacamole recipes even though they are not the perfect choice. I strongly recommend not to use unripe avocados for guacamole)
When you slightly press the ripe avocados, you can feel the fruit to be soft (the unripe fruit will be often hard) and it will yield to the pressure. Unripe avocados will be rigid and hard, so you have to wait for them to become ripe to be used for guacamole recipe.
Now that you have selected the avocados to make the simple guacamole dip, you are ready to go for the recipe.
