Reviews for Homemade Guacamole
"My friends love this. I bring it to our monthly game nights because they always request it."
"I used red onion and a small amount of salsa - got rave reviews from my guests."
"GREAT taste and easy to follow recipe!!!"
"Easy and oh so tasty."
"Super easy and yummy!! I love the taste of cilantro. Next time I will add chopped tomato!"
"This was a super easy and very tasty recipe. I like how simple it is to make and the freashness of the taste. My best fried and I ate almost all of it by ourelves."
"If you don't plan on eating the guac right away, I highly recommend 2 tips. 1. Rinse the chopped onions in water before adding to the guac - otherwise it will overpower it. 2. Add the pit of one avocado to the guac and cover it with plastic wrap so the wrap touches the surface of the guac. It will last much longer this way."
"A good starter but added garlic and garlic salt with a dash of cayenne."
"LOVED the fact that this is so simple and that the flavor of the avocado is not overpowered by any other ingredients! Love chunky avocado and lime! Reminds me of Chipotle!"
"Super easy and great taste! I had lost my recipe and was going crazy trying to find it again. This is a keeper!!"
"This is my go-to recipe for guacamole! I did increase the salt a little, as well, but I made it and let it rest first before adding more salt, according to my taste. Great recipe!"
"Very good but we added a little sour cream to make it a little more creamy and spreadable. We increased the salt a little bit as well."
Enjoy this recipe with a sparkling wine.
