I’ve been in this country too long, I’m starting to call guacamole anything with avocados in it” was posted on the newsgroup alt.food.mexican-cooking on February 2, 1999.

Wikipedia: Guacamole
Guacamole (Spanish: [wakaˈmole]; or [ɡwakaˈmole]; sometimes informally referred to as “guac” in North America) is an avocado-based dip, spread, or salad first developed by the Aztecs in what is now Mexico. In addition to its use in modern Mexican cuisine, it has become part of international and American cuisine as a dip, condiment and salad ingredient.
Wikipedia: Salsa (sauce)
Salsa is the Spanish, Italian, Greek, and Turkish (salça) term for sauce. In English-speaking countries, salsa usually refers to the sauces typical of Mexican cuisine known as hot salsas or salsas picantes, particularly those used as dips. Salsa is often tomato-based, a heterogeneous mixture that includes ingredients such as onions, chilies, beans, corn, and various spices. It is typically piquant, ranging from “mild” to “extremely hot”.

Avocado salsa; don’t call it guacamole
This recipe, borrowed from my mom, won first prize for me and my business associates in the salsa competition at the California Rodeo in Salinas in 1997. Just don’t call it guacamole, please. That’s for Super Bowl Sunday and, perhaps, your wannabe neighborhood Mexican restaurant.
