This dip was really good but after a few changes, that's the reason I'm only giving 4 stars. I added extra tomatoes, jalapenos and lots of cilantro, I can't imagine this dip without the flavor of cilantro.

I would definitely use garlic instead of onion, add some black beans (out of a can) and ... well, maybe I have a different recipe altogether.

This is a really good basic recipe. I like my guacamole chunky so I usually do 1 tomato, 1-2 avocado, 1/4-1/2 an onion, minced. And I use a splash of lime juice instead of lemon, a sprinkling of salt, and a bunch of chopped cilantro. This is a great starter recipe though for someone who has never really made guacamole.

There's nothing like a really good guacamole! I cut the recipe in half and used de-seeded my tomato and since not "type" of onion was specified I chose a red onion. I used fresh lime juice instead of lemon juice and added a bit of garlic, salt, 1 Tbsp. of chopped cilantro, and 1/4 tsp. of cumin. Great with warm tortilla chips!

Tasted great for me, I prefer mine basic. Easy to make and went great with tortilla chips and cheese quesadillas.
