Make your guacamole. Put it in a bowl that has a tight fitting lid. Pack the guacamole tightly in the bowl or jar, pressing out air bubbles.

Dribble in some lukewarm water. Fill a measuring cup and pour it gently down the sides. Make sure the water covers the surface of the guacamole to about a 1/2 inch of water.
4
Put on the lid and chill for up to 3 days if desired.
5
When ready to use, take off lid and gently pour out the water. Add the tomato.
6
Stir up ingredients to incorporate any extra moisture.
