Guacamole needs to be stored in an airtight container in the fridge. You will find it is best served fresh, as it will begin to turn brown as it sits in the fridge. Place plastic wrap right on top of the guacamole to help the dip from browning as fast.
Or you can even place the avocado pit in the bowl with the guac, to help the browning process.

Common questions when making this Chipotle Copycat Guacamole recipe.
Here are a few pointers on how to pick ripe avocados. Grab the avocado, and gently squeeze it and if it is somewhat soft, that means your avocado is riper. If it is very firm, that means it needs more time. The other thing to look for is making sure there is not any bruising or soft spots in your avocado.
Place your under ripe avocado in a brown paper bag with a banana or even a kiwi. Allow it to sit in the bag for 1-2 days. The natural gasses released will ripen the avocado perfectly.
Guacamole can be frozen, but it will alter the flavor and texture. The avocado dip will lose a lot of the flavor, and the texture will be soggier. I recommend only making what you plan to eat.
3-4 days is the max life of this dip. You will find after a bit it begins to lose the flavor, becomes watery, and spoils. The best flavor is eaten fresh or within the first 2 days.
