Can you freeze guacamole?

I bought a tub of the stuff at the market, but once it's opened, it will spoil quickly. Can I freeze part of it, then thaw it out for later?

I'm pretty sure freezing portions of it and then thawing them later would not make the guac unhealthy to eat, so long as it was kept frozen in the meantime. I don't know what the texture would be like after it thawed out, though.

Never tried to freeze but agree with Tom in that it would probably be edible. I do find though that avocado has a tendency to discolour easily.

There is joy and beauty in everything around us, just take time to see it!

That's been the basic problem. Once opened, the guac tends to turn brown within 24-hours. Anyway, I tried it, and apparently you CAN freeze guacamole for use later. After about a week in my freezer, I thawed a portion of it, and it was actually pretty good. Still green and tasty. Thanks for the replies.
