I love a delicious appetizer. And as much as I love to spend time in the kitchen with a big plan and lots of prep time, that’s not always a possibility in my life.

I’m always bringing you delicious apps, because they are my favorite thing. Quick and easy goat cheese spread, marinated cream cheese, and cream cheese bean dip are favorites that anyone can accomplish in a pinch.

Tips

These are just as easy to make as they are to serve, but keep these tips in mind for the best outcome!

  • Learn how to cut an avocado here, and how to cut jalapeños here!
  • I find pre-packaged guacamole to often hold a little more moisture. If you use pre-made guac, be sure to make these immediately before serving so they don’t become soggy!
  • With homemade guacamole, I have been able to make these half an hour ahead of time with no problems.

How to Store

  • Room Temperature – You can safely leave guacamole sitting out at room temperature for up to two hours while serving. However, it will start to brown with oxidation within an hour, and it could make these guacamole bites a little soggy, so don’t make them too far in advance.
  • Refrigerate – While you can’t store these individual guacamole bites (they will become soggy), you can store the leftover guac in the fridge. First, add guacamole to an airtight container. Then cover in a thin, visible layer of lime juice or water. Press plastic wrap tightly onto the surface of guacamole to cover. Refrigerate safely up to 2-3 days.
  • Freeze – These guacamole bites won’t freeze well.

    1. Hi Claire! They take approximately 10 minutes to make. You can find all the details in the recipe card. Enjoy!

  1. Hi! I want to make these for a party this Sunday, but how long do they last before the chip gets soggy? We’re making homemade guacamole.

    1. Hi! It’s best made no more than an hour in advance. Guacamole quickly browns and chips will eventually become soggy.
