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.

Oh Sandra, come on now >>>ANYTHING THAT INVOLVES MAYO I’M IN. :))seriously though I do understand and think usually it’s used as an extender-I’ll try it simply because avo’s are on sale&we adore tomatoes&rest of ingredients.

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!
