    tsp.

    ground black pepper

  • The myth that leaving an avocado stone in the guacamole will keep it from turning brown began because people noticed that the guacamole directly under a stone stayed green, but this is because that was the part not exposed to the air. So, if you want to keep your guac bright green while storing, press a piece of plastic wrap directly over the top, squeezing out all the air bubbles so that the plastic is in direct contact with the guacamole, and voilà, no more browning!
  • Mashing avocados can be done with a potato masher, the back of a fork (for a chunkier guacamole), or in a food processor (for a smoother guacamole).
