    AuntWoofieWoof's Note:

    Avocado pits unite!! Save this guacamole/avocado dip from turning black or brown!! The pit/seed of an avocado prevents guacamole/avocado dip from turning brown or black. It keeps it green, even after a day. This dip does not have any tomatoes in it. My mom made it this way when we kids were growing up. It is simple to make and very tasty. For a spicier, hotter dip, use jalapeños or serrano chilies instead of green chilies. The full flavor of the avocado comes through because there are not a lot of ingredients to mask its true flavor. This can be served as a side dish on a leaf of lettuce. You can also put a scoop of it on top of enchiladas or burritos. Larger avocados can be used but you will need to add more of the other ingredients as well. Preparation time is approximate.

      Great guacamole! It is similar to the version that I make, but I don't usually add the green chilies. It was nice for a change. I really appreciated the pit tip. I usually keep the pit in guac. if I have to store it for a while, but I did not know that it should be completely covered by the guac. I followed the tip and it worked like a charm! Thanks!!

      Very tasty guacamole! So easy to make, very creamy and delicious flavor. I found that 2 green onions and 2 green chilies added up to 1/4 cup each. Thank you for posting AuntWoofieWoof!

      Really good guacamole! I thought the hint about leaving in the pit was brilliant. Thanks for that little tidbit! Made for the Babes of ZWT4.
