MY REVIEW

The only way I'll make guacamole. I use fresh onion instead of the green onion if that's what I have. Extra onion and tomato pieces on top of dip are great as well!

Not exactly "effortless" as compared with other guac recipes I've tried, but I will say that it was worth the effort! Better than store bought for sure, especially if you are starting with good avocadoes.

Great dip. Served it w/ mulit-colored tortilla chips. Next time I'll double the recipe b/c it's so good! Used 3 tsp lime juice and made an hour in advance of company, putting it in the fridge in a ziploc container allowing the flavours to blend. A keeper!
