Iron Chef winner Jose Garces is an expert on authentic Latin cuisine. According to Chef Garces, the biggest guac mistake people make is using avocados that are too hard; using ripe avocados will result in soft, creamy guacamole. Chef Garces' other guacamole tip: If you're not going to eat it right away, stick the avocado pit back in the guac and cover the dish with plastic wrap until ready to serve.
