This was great! I made it for a salsa contest and won first place! The only thing I changed was omitting the red pepper and I definitely reccommend cilantro not parsley. The other change I made was mixing all the ingredients the night before and adding the avocado last minute. Letting it sit over night allows the flavors to blend and adds a little moisture. Enjoy!

Great recipe! I made some alterations on different occassions making it. Another review said that it was very forgiving and that is true. I just start chopping and throw everything together. I'll add lemon or lime juice, whichever I have on hand. Sometimes I'll add corn, different coloured peppers, yellow tomatoes, and whatever I have that I think goes well with salsa-like recipes. If you don't have lemon or lime you can add a little vinegar. Salsa isn't an exact recipe kinda thing, so just have fun and create something delicious! Read More

This was a last minute put together appetizer. Wow, the whole family inhaled this mixture in 1/2 hour. I did not even have cilantro to add- so I will make sure to have that on hand next time I make it. Also, I chopped my avocado too large- smaller is better. Very tasty and satisfying. Everyone was using it to put on their burgers and chicken after they had dipped into it with the chips. I will make it one of my basic recipes. Read More

Excellent & easy. What sets this recipe apart from other guacamole recipes is that there is no raw garlic to overpower the avocado and the addition of jalapenos gives it some zip...it all works well together. I had no sweet red pepper to add, but I didn't miss it. Read More

Made this recipe excluding the chopped tomato, as I stuffed cocktail tomatoes with the other ingredients - I also added a touch of fresh grated parmesan cheese and crumbled bacon - switch up basil for the corriander, good too. Read More

Pretty good. I usually make a pretty basic Guacamole but this was a nice change to that. I've made it twice now and liked it better with a little more jalapeno, but that's just our liking for a little extra spice. Good flavor as is. Read More

Too much lime juice. It took over the entire dish. I think I would have liked the salsa if it weren't for that. I will try making this again but definitely cutting back on the lime juice. Read More

A little too much onion for my taste, plus I chopped and seeded two jalapenos because my family loves a good spicy salsa! Read More
