The Unexpected Ingredient To Get Thicker Guacamole
Adding yogurt, specifically yogurt cheese and sour cream, to guacamole can enhance its thickness and flavor. Layering sour cream on your guacamole will also help prevent browning.
Yogurt cheese is made by straining yogurt through a cloth to remove most of the liquid. You can do this by filtering yogurt through a cheesecloth-lined metal strainer.
Place your strainer over a bowl to catch the liquid. Filtration is a process that takes at least eight hours, so you can place it in the fridge the night before you make guacamole.
Once the yogurt cheese is ready, add half a cup each of yogurt cheese and sour cream to a six-serving bowl of guacamole with three avocados.
The key is to fold the yogurt and sour cream into the guacamole layer by layer. Folding is a common technique that creates a creamy, fluffy texture without weighing down a dip.
