Random guacamole question

Can store bought guacamole be stored in the fridge after it has been opened and used the next day? I know when I make it from scratch I only make enough for that meal because it turns a funny color if refridgerated. The package says easy to serve container which leads me to believe that it's meant for one serving. Thanks for any help!

Cover it with plastic wrap. Press the plastic wrap directly against the guacamole so that no air at all touches the guac. That should keep it from browning. I do it all the time and have no problems.

Thanks for the tip. I never knew how to keep the guacamole from browning.

When i get the urge to show off, a tiny voice inside my head says "resist the urge". So i shut my mouth and stand still.

this probably won't help you but i have heard that if you keep the pit with the avacado it prevents browning/discoloration. i guess that means put the pit into the guacamole.

Thanks, I've heard about the pit too, however the avocados were terrible at the grocery so I bought the pre-made. Thanks again for the tips!

When I worked for Qdoba, we sprayed the top with lime juice and thw pressed the saran wrap to the top of the guacamole. The recipe made so much that it usually lasted more than a day. Then just stir it really well before using it again.

The nasty colour is just oxidation, same as a banana or apple does after it's cut. The acid in lime (or lemon) juice slows this way down; never heard that tip about the pit though. The dip is fine to eat after a day in the fridge regardless of how it looks.

Unless it is competely brown, a little discoloration in a day old package is fine. For future reference from a wholly guacomole addict- squeeze out any air, roll package and attach a chip clip.

When making large batches of homemade guacamole- I blend in lime juice and store in an airtight container. It stays fresh for about five days.
