This is a very slight variation on my dad's recipe; his didn't use the chili powder, but I think it adds a nice touch. It's some of the best I have ever had, especially when eaten with homemade tortilla chips

Made this tonight for the second time in three days. Fresh, easy and delicious. I actually use 4 Haas avacados (they're a little on the small side), and lime instead of lemon. Also, I add one chopped green onion and a little more jalapeno. Great as a snack or with any meal.

This was fairly easy to make. I left out the chili's because the kids were eating it. It was very tasty and will make it again.

I loved this recipe. It was a great addition to my mexican night. I put in fresh peppers instead of canned and it really zinged. Thanks so much for sharing!
