Guacamole :: Making Large Batch Quatities for Freezer Storage
I first started making guacamole when my first born was a toddler. She *loved* avocado as a first food, and as she was getting older I was trying to find ways of serving it to her other than just plain. I played around with recipes for a while until I got just the right flavor to our family’s taste, and I would make it every so often for us to share.

Years later…and 2 more babies later…well one batch of guacamole doesn’t last real long around here!

I started taking advantage of when our local grocer puts avocados on sale 10 for $10 with the 11th free every few months, adjusted my recipe to create a larger quantity of avocados, and this has become my method for guacamole over the last year.

The recipe uses 5 out of the 6 avocados I get during those quarterly sales. The other 6 get plenty of attention from my little avocado monsters straight from the shell, get mushed up for baby, or get made in to a great salad dressing, smoothie, or sandwich spread.

Guacamole :: Large Batch Recipe For the Freezer
Author: 
 
Ingredients
  • 5 ripe avocados
  • 2 jalapenos, seeded and de-ribbed
  • 2 tomatoes, seeded and juices scooped out
  • ½ onion, coarsely chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • Juice of 1-2 lemons (use at least one and to taste you can add more depending on the juiciness of your lemons)
  • 2 tsp sea salt
Instructions
  1. Everything into the food processor and blend/pulse to desired consistency.
  2. Store in the fridge up to a week or in the freezer for months.

Tips:

    • This makes 4 pints of guacamole. I usually keep one pint out for lunch and freeze the rest. I have certainly doubled even this recipe and used 10 avocados. Especially if we haven’t seen that 10 for 10 sale in a while and we are a little avocado deprived!
    • This recipe is quite kid friendly in taste – as in not a ton of heat. If you prefer more kick to your guac I recommend adding another jalapeno or 2, or adding come chipotle or cayenne!
    • Freeze up in one serving portions to pop in the lunchboxes easy. Take them out of the freezer the night before and it will be thawed by their lunchtime!
    • Other than using guacamole on taco salad night or taco night, I like doing guac at lunchtime. I fry up rice tortillas in butter and quarter into “chips” for dipping in the guac. Very easily can be done in batches and the chips can be stored in a container for the week to pack in lunchboxes.

    I would love to freeze guac – that way I wouldn’t eat it all in one sitting! It doesn’t defrost brown?

      Hi Megan! Not at all! The lemon juice keeps it from browning 🙂

    I know this is an older post, but was checking out recipes as I just found your site! I see above that you said it does not brown when thawed, which is great! How does it thaw-does it keep it’s creaminess? We LOVE guac here, but many times our avacadoes aren’t the right ripeness for making it! Would be nice to have on hand for lunches for my 4 kiddos! 🙂 Our Aldi store sometimes sells Hass avacadoes for $.39/each! I would love to have a way to stock up when they are that cheap!

    I am really liking the recipes on your site, keep up the good work! 🙂

      Hi Steph! The texture stays the same! And oh goodness I’m very jealous of your Aldi’s with 39 cent avocados! I would be all over that!

      Thank you for your kind words as well – welcome!

    Wow! Thank you for this recipe, I never knew one could freeze guacamole. Now I do and look forward to when Avo’s are in season here in RSA again. We seldom see the prices you refer to but they’re so worth it. I’ve even planted a tree from a pip and it’s growing!
