This was the winner in the May 2012 Better Homes and Gardens Ultimate Guacamole contest. Guacamole revved up with the addition of pineapple and black beans. Created by Beth McDonald - Churchville, NY. Her recipe description: "I love guacamole and I wanted to try something different. I kept adding new ingredients and adjusting amounts--the pineapple adds a little sweetness--and it seems that with each bite I taste a different flavor." I'm looking forward to trying this one. Yum! Total time does not include chill time.
