2 lbs. California Avocados

1 medium lemon, sliced thinly (including peel), then cut into small dice

Check out our tips for how to choose and use California Avocados.


  1. Coarsely mash (DO NOT PUREE) California avocados. Fold in remaining ingredients. Serve with blue corn chips, deep-fried flour tortilla chips.
  2. Guacamole is best made as close to service as possible. Store in an airtight container with a piece of plastic wrap against the surface of the guacamole.
  3. *To roast corn, soak 2 ears in water for 1 hour. Remove husk and silk. Roast on the rack in a 375F degree oven, turning occasionally, until kernels appear slightly shriveled. Substitute well drained canned corn that has been blotted with a towel, if necessary.
