    The only real motivator to show up to a party on time: the guacamole. It's king of the dips — best fresh and always fast to disappear. It's also a bit controversial. Everyone either knows for sure where to find the most flavor-packed version, or they have their very own superior recipe, cultivated over the course of years of snacking.

    We say the ultimate guac needs to have a complex tang to it and a note of sweetness, too. The latter is where our favorite secret ingredient comes in: juicy pomegranate seeds. Whether you're an avocado-smashing newbie or an aficionado, this version will win you over — and will charm the company at your next shindig, too. Just skip dawdling in the foyer and make a beeline for the chips; this treat is not long for its bowl.
