"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!"

"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."
