Avocados have great creamy texture and flavor perfect for making dips, smoothies, spreads and more, and somehow I underestimated this fruit for a long time.
It is also known by the names butterfruit or alligator pear, and when I tried it for the first time, I didn’t really like the taste of the plain fruits.
At that time, I was trying to taste unripe avocados, which was not soft in texture nor tasty (so make sure to use ripe avocados for the best results, in any recipe).
But that was also before I ever tried the delicious Mexican guacamole dip!
Nowadays, I love avocados whether they are served as guacamole or they are just served plain raw with some salt or lime juice or even some fresh yogurt.
I also love to enjoy avocados with eggs, and avocados when paired with eggs make great breakfasts.

How long does homemade guacamole dip last in the fridge?
Guacamole dip tastes the best when it is served immediately.
However, if there is a delay in serving the guacamole dip, it is best stored in the refrigerator where it stays chilled.
Storing in the fridge helps the homemade guacamole dip to remain fresh and not brown though the added lemon juice prevents the browning to an extent naturally.
If you store the homemade guacamole in air tight food containers properly, it will last in the fridge for about 2 to 3 days freshly.
I do not recommend storing the guacamole more than two to three days time even in the refrigerator since it may not taste fresh after that.
