"The real trick to great guacamole is to use good avocados. Make sure your avocados are ripe and of the Haas variety! Serve this dip with corn chips, or an array of fresh vegetables." — PHLOX

My son and a friend wanted to have Guacamole for a snack, and I had never made it. I read the reviews of others for this recipe, and the version I prepared won rave reviews from the guys. I used fresh lime juice instead of lemon, decreased the olive oil to 1 tsp and added 1 clove minced garlic, 1 tbsp chopped cilantro and 1/4 cup chopped tomato to the rest of the ingredients. It sat for less than 5 minutes as it got eaten too fast! My son says it's the best Guacamole he has ever tasted.
You can't have guacamole without cilantro. I would leave out the oil, add some fresh chopped cilantro and chopped tomato.
This is a good base recipe, but for really good guac, you have to add some fresh cilantro. I would also omit the olive oil, and add a little cumin and a tomato. Or even roasted tomatillos if you have the time. I'd also use lime juice instead of lemon.
This is a good base recipe, but for really good guac, you have to add some fresh cilantro, garlic powder & tomatoe. I would also omit the olive oil, Makes it oily & slimy.
This recipe was only O.K....I had to use 3 avocados instead of two because once I added the oilve oil, it was very oily! I will use less oil next time! I also added some salsa to hide the oil taste. However, once I chilled it for a couple of hours, it was much better. Everyone enjoyed it at my dinner party. I will make it again but definately use a little less oil.
I thought this recipe was great, I just added a little garlic and tomato and it was the best guacamole I ever tried.
Kids are in school and I'm alone for the first time in two months with the computer all to myself! I personally love guacamole almost any way it's prepared. This is a good basic recipe which I often make when it's used as one of the layers with my mexican dip, without the oil. When serving alone, I like to add some roasted red peppers, onion and garlic powders and a little cayenne for a bit of a kick. Such a refreshing dip!
This didn't impress me too much. I may have had smaller avocados then the write used, becuase mine came out way too lemony and oily. I have found an even simpler and tastier recipe from the CA Avocado Commission that I use regularly now.
