    This dip was really good but after a few changes, that's the reason I'm only giving 4 stars. I added extra tomatoes, jalapenos and lots of cilantro, I can't imagine this dip without the flavor of cilantro.  -  19 Mar 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is a really good basic recipe. I like my guacamole chunky so I usually do 1 tomato, 1-2 avocado, 1/4-1/2 an onion, minced. And I use a splash of lime juice instead of lemon, a sprinkling of salt, and a bunch of chopped cilantro. This is a great starter recipe though for someone who has never really made guacamole.  -  21 Aug 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    There's nothing like a really good guacamole! I cut the recipe in half and used de-seeded my tomato and since not "type" of onion was specified I chose a red onion. I used fresh lime juice instead of lemon juice and added a bit of garlic, salt, 1 Tbsp. of chopped cilantro, and 1/4 tsp. of cumin. Great with warm tortilla chips!  -  11 Apr 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
