Very good guacamole. I didn't have olives but added salsa verde. Great with our Mexican Cobb Salad.

Didn't make this exactly as written - free-form and all. It seemed to be a little bland as we made it, but as the avocados we had (the great big huge ones) pretty tasteless, so that probably didn't help. Next time we'll use a different kind. I don't care for black olives, so skipped that - but might use green next time. We used some fresh pico de gallo that we'd made, which was nice. Also will definitely use some extra garlic. The sour cream adds a different dimension to it - great for a spread on BLTs or for homemade chips. Thanks!

I loved the sour cream. I followed the chef's advice and let my guacamole be free-form. I added extra garlic and omitted the black olives, just because I didn't want to open a whole can for a couple of olives. Great recipe. I will definitely be buying more avocados for this FANTASTIC recipe. THANK YOU!!

This is so good, I have made it weekly this summer! The sour cream makes it smooth and the salsa gives it a little zip. I prefer mine with added salt.

This was excellent! Made it last night with hubby. I love the addition of the sour cream. We were a little bit more generous with the tomatoe, onion and salsa... it's very hard to do just 1Tablespoon of those items. Also we used FRESH salsa. You could smell the yummy freshness of it all! Hubby added a couple dashes of Old Bay and it was tasty!

This is fantastic! I would have never thought to add black olives to guacamole, but it really gives it pizazz. The only thing I changed was to substitute sour cream with plain non-fat yogurt for a healthier option. I also used both lime and lemon juice instead of one or the other.

Really good. Very similar to my own recipe but I wanted some measurements to go by. I didn't add cilantro (find it vile.) or the black olives (also vile.) and instead of the tomato and salsa, I added 2 tbsp of tomatoes with green chilies which gave it a nice heat. Very tasty, and it yields quite a bit (nice to stretch out those expensive avocados). Thank you!

Ding Ding Ding Ding..we have a winner folks! DH loved it (think the sour cream won him over!) I didn't have everything on the list, so i subbed mild taco sauce for salsa, left out olives, cilantro because i had none on hand...as well as the onion (cos DH doesn't like raw onion). He has already requested I make it again. Thank you!
