It’s a warm summer day, sweat is dripping from your brow and you are craving a refreshing, healthy snack. The thought pops into your head “Guacamole.” However, you don’t know how to make it, and when you try, it ends up a green mush of vegetables. After watching many “How-to” videos, you finally give up on your Mexican dip-making skills. Until you come across this gem of step by step directions on how to make the world’s best guacamole in a flash. Say “adios” to your dull, flavorless salsa variation… and “hola” to the best summer snack!

To start it all off, you should make sure to have avocados, lemon juice, tomatoes, cilantro, salt, onions, jalapeños (if you like a little bit of a kick), garlic powder, and a bit of lime juice. These ingredients will coagulate to form a mixture of ripe vegetables and seasonings that will soothe your famished stomach, and leave you craving another fix.

Begin by peeling the avocados, and putting them in a bowl. Take the back of a spoon and mash the avocados until you get the desired texture: this may range from hard and lumpy, to smooth and silky.

Set this bowl aside, and with a large knife, dice tomatoes into small chunks and place them in the bowl. Once you have completed this step, take a moment to stir the tomato and avocado mixture; making sure it isn’t too soupy. If you find that your guacamole is too soggy, add more avocado slices to the bowl.

Next, mince the onions and cilantro into small enough pieces to where you will not have to chew them. Once they are chopped finely enough, dump them into the bowl and continue to mix everything together.

Lastly, sprinkle garlic powder and salt into the guacamole bowl. At this point, you should stir, then taste the mixture. From here on out, it is mostly based off of personal preference. If you feel like it still needs a bit of additional flavor, now would be the time to add a splash of lemon or lime juice. This will give your creation a tangy and flavorful taste, however, if you are someone who likes a little kick to their food, chop the jalapeño peppers and sprinkle them in as well.

The final (and most exciting) step in making your very own guacamole.. is eating it! Get a bag of Tostitos and dig into your delicious, homemade dip!

Chances are, you are salivating while you read this right now and you can’t wait to get home and make yourself some Guac. Now that you see just how easy it is to make this tasty treat, go ahead and give it a shot! The only regret you will have is not learning how to make it sooner.

8 Reasons Girls Who Love Tequila Are Better

Because if she can handle tequila, she can handle you too.

There are all kinds of alcohol stereotypes out there but the one associated with tequila is probably the worst: tequila makes you crazy. But if there's one thing we can all agree on, it's that women who drink tequila are one-of-a-kind.

Whether it's loving or fighting, you'll never find anyone who does it better than a girl who just straight up loves tequila, and here are a few reasons why that is.

1. She's independent

A girl who drinks tequila is probably the same girl who has absolutely no problem telling it like it is. She knows what she wants and goes after it.

2. She doesn't care what you or anyone else thinks

Oh, you have a problem with me taking shots and having a good time? Well, get over it! Bartender, a shot with salt and a lime please!

3. Always dancing

Tequila is an 'upper' so instead of sitting at the bar doing nothing, let's dance! Let's get moving!

4. There is never a dull moment

Speaking of dancing, a girl who drinks tequila is always down for a good time. Whether it's going on an adventure or seeing who can take the most shots, a tequila girl is always down to party.

5. While everyone else is starting to get sleepy, she has all the energy

Like I said, tequila is an 'upper' so while the other girls at the bar are starting to feel groggy and sad, she's all over the place having fun and partying on the dancefloor.

6. She's stronger than the girl crying over a vodka cranberry at the bar.

Sad over a breakup? Don't go for the vodka... Tequila will make you feel better in no time! Plus you can challenge the hot guys at the bar to a shot taking contest.

7. Tequila is healthy for you

Tequila is a probiotic, so some tequila a day keeps the doctor away. Yay for shots!

8. She can hold her own when it comes to alcohol

Any girl who can shoot some shots at the bar all day and night can handle alcohol, which means she can handle herself too. You won't have to deal with her constant breakdowns and mood swings because she will be too busy ordering more shots.

You Should 100 Percent Not Go Out To Eat If You're NOT Going To Tip 18 Percent, Or More

My current summer job is serving at a restaurant and it is the first serving job I have ever had. Here is what I have learned so far, in terms of tipping.

Being a server can be the best job at times and the worst job at times.

Most servers only make between 3 and 3.50 hourly, we rely solely on tips.

There is nothing more disappointing than picking up the check from a table and seeing that they tipped you under 20 percent. I would say a good rule of thumb is to always tip your server 20 percent unless you have a valid reason not to. If their service was truly terrible, then tip them under, but when their service was good and the meal was good too, you have no reason not to tip 20 percent.

I've been serving about 2 weeks now and I have been undertipped or not tipped at all several times.

I'm still learning as I go, but I think I am a good server. I always greet my customers, offer input on the menu, and constantly check on them during the meal. I can confidently say that I think I am worth a 20 percent tip. When I see that someone did not tip me what they should have, it's upsetting. I always wonder what I could have done to earn a better tip but the fact is that some people are just oblivious.

Some people are not aware that you are supposed to tip 18 percent as the bare minimum.

When I don't receive a tip at all, it feels like a waste of time. I put in your orders, brought your food to you, made sure you were enjoying my meal, constantly offered my services, and you don't tip me? Not tipping your server is just plain rude.

There are always some people that tip over 20 percent so, for the most part, it evens out between these people and those who do not tip, but there is no excuse for not tipping your server.

In conclusion, don't eat out if you are not going to leave a decent tip for your server.
