This is certainly one of the easiest guacamole recipes I have ever encountered. As a guacamole connoisseur, I was highly skeptical. After learning that one of the more famous Mexican restaurants in northern New Mexico uses a similar recipe, I decided to give it a try. The taste was amazing!

Two ingredients are all that's necessary when one of them is a good buttery avocado. Well maybe three...I added a few drops of lime juice. Another tip for keeping the guacamole brightly colored if making ahead of time - press Saran Wrap directly against the avocado mixture to keep air from reaching the surface. Read More

Might be authentic but my family missed the other ingredients we usually add. Read More

A true guacamole connoisseur knows the less you add to guacamole the better it is. If I have it I'll add a good sweet onion and some finely chopped tomatoes. Avocado salt and garlic that's all you need. Read More

Definitely easy and very tasty! My husband isn't a huge fan of cilantro so I thought I'd give this a try. I didn't have garlic salt so I used sea salt and added some minced garlic. I also added a bit of fresh lime juice. To me guacamole needs a bit of cumin so I added a little over a 1/4 tsp. as a personal preference. This was very simple and very tasty - great served with warm tortilla chips! Read More

This was so good and was gone in about 5 minutes. The only addition I made was a squirt of lime juice and some diced tomatoes. Served with chips and made it along with the pico de gallo from "pico de gallo chicken quesadillas" by Tony Cortez from this site. Read More

This is how I always make my guacamole and I didn't even know there was a recipe out there for it! I know this may sound gross to some people but every now and then I'll add a little bit of cream cheese to make it even creamier. But that's just me I'm weird anyway.:) Read More

I'm a little sheepish that this is all it takes. A little lime adds flavor; minced tomato color; minced onion crunch. Guacamole solved! Read More

Perfect. I didn't change anything about the recipe and was delighted with the outcome. I served this with a side of pico and thick tortilla chips and washed it down with a good tequilla. Excellent! The idea of rating a recipe is to rate it as is. If you make changes create a recipe of your own and rate that recipe. Read More
