This is just a perfectly simple guacamole recipe that everyone loved. I left out the mayo. My usual recipe has way more ingredients than this, yet I found this one more satisfying. This will be my new go-to!

My family and friends love this receipe. We don’t add the cilantro but otherwise stay true to the receipe and it is a hit.

This guacamole is fresh and delicious. I made it without the mayo and some extra cilantro to match our tastes. The freshness was perfect with the saltiness of tortilla chips and spice of taco seasoning.

I made this while on vacation and our entire family said it was the best guacamole they've ever had! I'm now proud to say, "I make a mean guacamole!" haha! I didn't have tomatoes, but I did have salsa, so I added a few spoonfuls. I also opted TO add the mayo. I mixed it all together with a hand mixer and we all loved how smooth and delicious it was. My daughter requested I make it again tonight...and it received the same rave reviews! This is the only recipe I'll be using from now on!

In my rendition I opt out of the mayo and cilantro. The family likes the taste of fresh avocado.

Great recipe. This is how I taught my son to make guacamole, except we leave out the mayo. We also use either Sea salt or Kosher salt. Fresh cilantro is great, but dried can be used if necessary. Again wonderful.

This may be the best guacamole we've ever had! Never thought of adding mayo but it worked perfectly! Didn't have cilantro, so used fresh parsley. We loved it!! It paired perfectly with the chicken enchiladas I served it with.This will be my new go-to guacamole dip! Fabulous recipe!

As much as I generally love Taste of Home recipes, if you see a guacamole recipe that includes mayonnaise, run the other way!
