“My husband told me this is the best guacamole he’s tasted!” Now you can enjoy a classic dip without any guilt. If you don’t have lemon juice on hand, lime will work, too. Lisa Sievers - Philipsburg, PA

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 17, 2009

We used this at a birthday party today. Loved it! It was a hit with many guests. I did not put in the chilies as my husband does not like hot food; instead I added just a bit more lemon juice. Yummy!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 4, 2009

I run a college food service and I forgot to order guacamole for our taco day. I made up this recipe and both the students and my staff went nuts over it. I just added some hot sauce.
