If you are not up to making guacamole from scratch, Nino’s has several prepared guacamoles that are readily available to just grab and go, including our very own Nino’s Fresh Guacamole, which is located in our salsa and dip cases.
Although avocados are most commonly used for guacamole, there are many other ways one can enjoy avocados. Our favorite way to eat avocados is to simply choose a perfectly ripe one (all black, slightly tender) and just slice it in half, remove the large pit, squeeze a fresh lime over the cut halves and enjoy. You can also enjoy them with a salad or sandwich.
Choosing the Right Avocados
When you are shopping for avocados, it might be hard to find a perfectly ripe one. Although we try our best to ensure that our avocados are at the perfect ripeness, sometimes they are just too green or not ripe enough. we are going to teach you a little trick to help speed up the ripening process. Simply place a banana in a brown paper bag along with the avocados you want ripened. Then, tightly roll up the bag so that no air can penetrate it. The natural gas that is released from bananas is called ethylene. Ethylene will speed up the ripening process for those greener avocados and for pretty much any other fruit.
