How to make Guacamole Dip in a pressure situation! No time to go shopping for that perfect gift? Make Guacamole!
Have you ever been to a Mexican or Latin American restaurant and get the salsa and guacamole? I get full by eating the chips and dip because of how addictive they are. I decided to make guacamole so that I could put my own twist on it. I could decide how much pepper, lime, and tomato to put in my dip.
The problem I had was deciding what to do for Mother’s Day. I did not have time to go out and get a gift so I had to make do with the ingredients that I had in the fridge. Luckily, I had avocados, tomatoes, and onions which gave me the idea to copy the restaurant appetizers.
What I loved about making the guac was that it was a fun and quick snack for anyone that has to make a last minute gift, especially when it’s a hit at parties. Within 10 minutes, you have a tangy, Latin American snack that can be shared with many people. I hope that you enjoy the process of making it and then eating the deliciousness.

Step 4: Summary
The guacamole will last about 2 days and then the green avocado will begin to turn brown. A potential problem is the avocados not being ripe enough and being too hard to mash. A solution to that is being careful at the grocery store and squeezing the avocado to make sure it is soft enough. Another problem is that the dip can go bad quicker if not stored properly so make sure to put foil over the bowl or place the dip in a tupperware container. I hope that this dip is as big of a hit at your parties as it was at mine!
