Can we all just get real for a minute here?

I mean, everytime there is a get together I can just see everyone thinking about diving into all the bowls of dip with a spoon or, you know, their face. But, no. People try to be all polite and respectful and gently dip their chips in the guacamole, just as lady-like as can be.

I would like to stand up for dippers everywhere and say this: It’s perfectly acceptable to have more dip than chip.

Not only is it acceptable, it’s preferred. I mean, the chip is just the vehicle for the deliciousness. It’s really just not right to gently poke at your dip with a chip. You need to scoop it, y’all.

Big hunks of dip, tiny little chips.

If I ever run for mayor, that will be my slogan. I’m pretty sure I’d win by a landslide.

In the meantime, though, people seem to feel weird about overloading on dip. I think I’ve found a way around it.

Rather than chips, we’re going to use tostadas. (No worries, tostadas are just oversized chips.) We’re going to load those tostadas up with as much guacamole as is humanly possible. Then we’re going to smear that guacamole all over our face and dance in the moonlight and write poetry about the mighty avocado.

No? Too much?


Well, then. Just eat the tostada and enjoy your guacamole made with Avocados from Mexico. This recipe is taken straight from the game day recipes at Avocados from Mexico. I didn’t even tweak it, which was weird for me. Avocados from Mexico has lots of fabulous recipes, perfect for the big game! What avocado treat will you be making for the Superbowl?

    I may or may not have been guilty of dip guilt once or twice in my life so yeah…I get it. It’s a sad phenomenon. Thank heavens for your fabolous tostada idea!
