  • Then add the cilantro and puree until well blended. I admit that I typically add more cilantro than the recipe calls for because, well, I’m a big fan of it!
  • Add the avocado and puree until smooth. Taste for salt and add more if needed according to taste.

How Do I Get The Aguacates (Avocados) To Last?

The key to getting ripe avocados so they last it’s easy and it works!. First buy hard to the touch, bright green avocados and allow them to ripen on the counter. Once they are black, soft to the touch (NOT squishy) store them in the fridge. Here is where they will last for quite a few days!

If you buy them already ripe, just store them in the fridge right away and they should last a few more days.

Did you know you can freeze avocados?

I like to buy them on they go on sale and freeze them! Once they’re ripe, cut in them in halves or chunks (and even mashed or puréed), add some lemon or lime juice and seal the avocado in a freezer bag. Remove as much as air as you can.

They will keep in the freezer for 4–6 months. This way you can make this avocado salsa recipe often!
