Tips for a Superior Guacamole Bar Setup
Mash all of the avocados before your event — a potato masher works great for large batches. As you mash, cater to those guests who prefer chunky guacamole and set out forks for those who may wish to mash more when creating their own mix. Squeeze the juice of a few limes over the mashed-avocado base to keep it green until party time, then sprinkle in some salt for flavor.
Set the avocado base in a large bowl on one end of your table and place another bowl with chips or fresh veggies at the other end. Line all the other ingredients up in smaller bowls across the center of the table.
Make sure to accompany each bowl, including the one containing the avocado base, with a spoon for easy, self-serve assembly. Include napkins near the chips or fresh veggies to minimize mess.
Go Forth and Guac
Whether you’re hosting a party with friends or a family get-together, alleviate some preparation pressure with a DIY guacamole bar sure to meet everyone’s taste and texture preferences.
