Yet another giveaway time :).The birthday celebration continues with the most trusted Wholly guacamole giveaway!

Yup, this giveaway is sponsored by Wholly guacamole. I will get back to the giveaway in a while. At first let’s talk about how I ended up with 10 delicious packages of Wholly products at my door.

Somewhere in March, I entered one of the giveaways on my friend Katie’s blog and luckily I was the winner of 10 packets of Wholly products. Take a look at the variety of products I received. Few packets are still left in my freezer.

I always loved Wholly products so it was a perfect treat for me BUT the only question was what will I do with all this guacamole. I mean I do love avocado and I am crazy for guacamole but too much of everything is just too much, isn’t it?

But thanks to Wholly guacamole that I can freeze their guacamole and salsa. And when I need it, just take one package out, defrost and enjoy.  So convenient.  You know what is the best thing to like about Wholly? You do not taste preservative at all. Because it is made of all natural ingredients – just like homemade.

Coming back to the recipe – This Mexican dip is one of the staple evening snacks in my house. It always makes a nice appetizer and guests love it. Healthy, flavorful, easy to make and crowd pleased! Two thumbs up!
