This great dip is always the first to go at our barbeques. It's a simple guacamole, perfect for dipping tortilla chips or serving with tacos. To prevent browning, leave an avocado seed in it until serving.

This recipe was awesome. I made the process alot easier by putting all but the avacado in a food processor...no chopping! It is caliente (hot) tho.....so if you like the dip more mile omit or lessen the jalapeno's. Ole'! Read More

Just looking over the measurements of ingredients alerts you instantly that there is something majorly wrong with this recipe which would have nothing to do with individual taste preferences. I don't believe anyone could tolerate let alone like guacamole prepared with this much salt! So strike one right off the bat. Second for my taste buds anyway one whole onion two jalapenos and one large tomato to two avocados is just simply off too! Could this possibly have been for maybe SIX avocados? The lime juice as well is probably twice the amount it should be for this many avocados. I did make guacamole with these ingredients but I salted to taste and added the other ingredients more in proportion to the two avocados. I also added a small clove of minced garlic. With significant changes in measurements this could be a great basic guacamole. If prepared as written however I don't know how anyone could eat it. Read More

Wonderful guacamole but do cut the amount of salt in half at least! I also cut the amount of jalepeno in half as well and when it states one onion diced I used only 2 Tbsp. of finely chopped red onion. I de-seeded the tomato (used 1 roma) and added 1/4 tsp. of cumin and 2 cloves of minced garlic from a jar. Overall pretty good with warm tortilla chips. Read More

This recipe was really good with one exception it was too salty. I think next time I'll only add 1 tsp. of salt but other than that it's a keeper. Thanks! Read More

I agree too salty. I also found that the ingredients were way too much for the amount of avocados I had. Mine were a bit small so I put 3 small avocados in and found that a whole onion and tomato would have been WAY too much. I also only used one jalapeno. I suggest more avocados or less of the other ingredients. Read More

This guacamole was excellent. I am a cook-in-training and I had never made guac before. My boyfriend is from Texas so I was a bit intimidated by the prospect. However we sat and ate it ALL NIGHT LONG making ourselves very fat in the process.:-P One thing that recipe does not say and perhaps this is a no-brainer for some: you need to seed the jalepenos and remove the membrane. We almost removed the lining of our mouths! Read More

This was way too salty - I wish I had read the reviews before I made it because apparently I am not the only one that thinks so. My quacamole was bad. Thanks. Read More
