Guacamole Recipe

Publisher Photo
This is one of our favorite spicy snack food recipes, and it's quick and easy to prepare when friends drop by on short notice. It also makes a great side dish for a complete Southwestern-style meal. Mild or sweet peppers can be substituted for the chilies for those who like their guacamole a little less spicy. —Anne Tipps, Duncanville, Texas

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 22, 2014

Made with 2 avacados, the juice of a small lemon, onion and one chopped tomato. Did add the salt. Didn't realize I had forgotten the green chilis until it was ready to go on the table. Didn't miss them and the guacamole was terrific! Will definitely add this to my recipe file as a keeper.

This is so good. I doubled it and had it stored in my fridge. My husband and some buddies dropped by and three men who swore they hated avocado scarfed it down in no time flat.
