"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!"

"This is excellent - and so easy! I made it to serve with tortilla chips alongside of fish tacos. Delicious! It seemed to make more than just 1 cup - which was fine with my family! :)"
