    Can you freeze guacamole?

    • Lisa says:

      Christina – Guacamole doesn’t freeze well, due to the discoloration. However if that doesn’t bother you, then I would certainly give it a whirl! Here is our favorite Guac recipe! http://onceamonthmeals.com/guacamole/

    • Ruthie says:

      Totally. If you buy the packs at the store, they freeze really well because there’s no oxygen inside. It’s trickier to do at home, but if you add some vegetable oil to your guac, it can help keep the avocados from discoloring as quickly.

    How spicy does the Sriracha make it?

    • Lisa says:

      Lori – If you are concerned about it being too spicy I would suggest cutting it down to 1 Tablespoon or just use on serving day.

    How do you cook your sweet potatoes?

    • Lisa says:

      Monica- You can roast them in the oven with a little olive oil, or I usually steam them in the microwave until fork tender.
