Don’t be conscientious of the desires of others
To become a fully realized dipper, don’t be afraid to do what you want to do – get the guacamole you want to get. Worry too much about everyone else trying to dip and you’ll pull back. Use each dip to the fullest and disregard other eaters.
Know your corner from your edge
The corner of a chip and the edge of the chip both have advantages and disadvantages. A corner can poke into the dip easily, but lacks the carrying area of the edge. Both need to be combined for a poke-and-turn-to-an-edge dip of maximum efficiency.
Dip in order from thickest to thinnest
In an example situation with salsa, guacamole, and sour cream as available dips – the optimum dip order is thick guac, then medium thickness sour cream, then more liquid salsa. In this way, your chip can pick up the most amount of dip without cross contaminating other dips which is a no-no.
Double dipping exposes a weak mentality
If you dip a chip, take a bite, and dip again you are admitting that you are not a strong dipper. A strong dipper only needs one dip to get all of the sauce he or she needs on a chip. Anything more than one dip is a mental error.
Don’t wait too long to dip
If you wait too long, the dip will get cold and gross and you won’t want to dip and won’t enjoy the dip when you do. Dip as much as you can as early as you can.
