Too much lime juice in guacamole can take this classic dip from delicious to tart in an instant. Too much lime juice, combined with the salt, pulls moisture from the avocado, turning an otherwise sumptuous guacamole into a watery mess. Simple fixes set your guacamole back on track to complement a perfect meal.


Making the Fix

Add in up to one-half more mashed avocado reduce the effects of the lime juice. Add the avocado slowly, stirring as you go to create the desired consistency. If the guacamole is still too tart after adding avocado, add in 1 teaspoon of sugar and mix well. The sugar should mellow out the sour taste.
