This is CRAZY! I love all the ingredients separately and was pleasantly surprised at how much I LOVED this recipe. Avocados are a favorite and it's normal to add tomatoes lime juice and green onions for a "normal" guacamole but the capers gave it a nice salty bite and the tuna adds more! I don't know where you came up with the idea for this recipe but it's one I could see myself noshing on with wheat crackers for a healthy and delicious lunch. YUM! Read More

I made this recipe to the T. My husband and I thought this was bland. I am not sure what would take it over the top for us but I am open to some ideas:) Read More

Like the earlier reviewer I liked this way more than I ever thought I would. I didn't have scallions so did a fine dice on 1/4 white onion and added a red bell pepper (again finely diced). Both of these ingredients helped to make it crisp and fresh-tasting. I served it just with crackers and cheese as a snack or light meal. Read More

This was amazing! I wasn't sure how the flavors would blend but it was a great combination. I put it over roasted eggplant and topped it with cheese and it was delicious. Read More

Excellent as written. Adults ate it in lettuce wraps kids ate with paleo crackers. I agree it would also be excellent as a dip with fresh veggies. I did add a few shakes of cayenne pepper and will do that again next time as well. Read More

I just made this. I followed the directions. I used my food processor & pulsed the avocados & the whole lime. Added 2 teaspoons of salt & pepper for taste. Served it with lime tortilla chips. This tastes awesome! Read More
