Basic Guacamole Recipe

With the weather warming up, it’s the perfect time for those outdoor gatherings (Unless you are experiencing this year’s abnormal heat wave).

So grab those ripe avocados and let’s make some delicious guacamole for your next party. It’s easy with your Zip Top containers. All you need is a Zip Top dish — any size will work, depending on how much guacamole you want to make. Mash the avocado in the dish, mix in the other ingredients and zip shut to store in the fridge for later or to take on-the-go. 

The best part? Zip Top containers are amazing at keeping your food fresh, so it will stay fresh longer.
