Guacamole Dip

SINCE guacamole is a favorite in this area with its emphasis on Mexican food, I decided to create my own recipe. I serve it as a dip for chips, with baked chicken or to top off a bed of lettuce. -Virginia Burwell, Dayton, Texas

    Very nice, added some lime juice for flavour. I chopped the avacado. Janet

    I used the basic recipe with some changes and they were: added fresh cilantro, 1/2 lime, sour cream instead of yogurt because I did't have any, few more drops of hot sauce and a little more onion and salsa. It came out delicious. Will definitely make it again. I would have given it 5 star if I didn't make any changes.

    This tasted great! I had all the ingredients on hand. I also used a little lemon juice to keep it from turning brown.

    Though I knew the basics of guacamole dipdecided to use a recipe to make sure the right amount of each flavor was there. The only change I made was using onion powder, instead of chopped onion. I was in a hurry, and it substituted for a perfectly to achieve that same taste. My husband thought the color was a bit light green due to the picante; a little green food coloring took care of that. Delicious, quick, and a real keeper!

    I didn't have plain yogurt on hand, so I used sour cream. It turned out delicious. I also added a couple more drops of hot sauce for a little more kick. Will definitley make again.
