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

A keeper! I made this recipe twice. the second time, i added a bit less lemon juice and enjoyed the taste just as well as following the recipe the first time.

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.
