States, more than 1,000 people die each year from food-borne illness caused by Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium, a bacterium that can be transmitted from person to person through the consumption of raw or undercooked meat, poultry, fish, shellfish, or eggs.

Why does my guacamole taste fizzy?
GAMBLE was our second dish and we were surprised that it was actually fizzy. The phenomenon is that the lemon juice is old and sour. It’s a great way to add a little extra flavor to your guac. The third dish we tried was our favorite of the night – the Chicken Fajita Bowl.
This was a huge bowl of chicken, rice, beans, and tortilla chips. The chicken was tender and flavorful, the rice was cooked perfectly and the beans were a perfect blend of sweet and spicy. I would definitely recommend this dish to anyone looking for a quick and easy meal.
How long will guac last in the fridge?
It makes sense that when not being eaten, guacamole needs to be kept in a container in the refrigerator.
Even if it has been sitting out for a few days, refrigerated guacamole can still be eaten for a few days. If you are not sure how long to store it, it is best to leave it out at room temperature for at least 4-6 hours before eating it.
This will allow the flavors to mellow and the moisture to evaporate.

Guac can be homemade for up to 5 days. If everything else in the fridge is still good, you should discard it even if it is no longer safe to eat. Store it in an airtight container in a cool, dry place. It will keep for a few weeks, but it will lose some of its flavor.
How do you know when an avocado goes bad?
Avocados are rotten if they’re mushy when squeezed, brown or moldy inside, and have developed rancidity or a sour smell. If the fruit is just starting to brown inside and the rest of the fruit looks good, you may be able to get some of it back.
If you can’t get your hands on a ripe avocado, you’ll have to use a dehydrator to dehydrate it. This is a great way to save money on food, but it also means that you won’t be getting the freshest, healthiest avocado you could ever want. If you’re looking for a healthier alternative, try making your own avocado sauce.
