I am anxious to try this recipe,thank you, love guacamole! I usually add salsa, as I don't always have peppers on hand. Here's a tip I got from a relative. If by some chance you have leftovers, if you leave the avacado pit in the guac, it will stay fresh for a couple days. I tried it, and it was the third day before it started turning brown.

Not a review but tips regarding avocados. Buy them green and ripen in a brown paper lunch sack. It takes about three days but you never have brown over ripe avocados again. Also lemon juice works as well as lime. One last tip, if you want to make your guac ahead, go ahead! Seal the top with plastic wrap directly on the dip making sure to get all the air out. Works great!

Yum! Can't go too wrong with guac, though! I think the cilantro is a must, but just eye-balled it b/c 1/2 cup seems like a LOT! I used 1/2 a jalapeno instead of serrano, but should've used more to make it spicy. Thanks for posting!

This guacamole came out great. I didn't use quite as much cilantro simply because I didn't have enough. The taste was very good with lots of flavor. Thanks.

Pretty good recipe. I thought it had too much cilantro (and I like cilantro). I also added diced roma tomatoes.

My family doesn't usually eat guacamole and they gobbled this up. I only used one of the sereno peppers because I was afraid it would be too spicy, and I made the right call - just spicy enough. I did use the cilantro because I love it, and it added a nice balance to the flavors and spice.

I made this in 5 mins and it was gone in 5 mins. It was FABULOUS! My husband & I inhaled it and he asked me to make more. I had to sub the serrano chilies with jalapeno and I left out the cilantro (can't stand the stuff) and it was perfect - so much better than the guac we usually buy or get out and it cost me under $2.00 to make. It had just the right amount of spice for us. We eat Mexican a lot and I'll probably be making this once a week or more. Thanks spatchcock - excellent recipe!

YUM! This was SO good my guests cleared the bowl before I had my fill. Good thing I have extra avocados waiting for me... I was really worried about about browning, so I prepared the other ingredients ahead of time & mashed the avocados (I used 2 small ones) when the guests arrived. I saw the slightest tint on the sides of the bowl when cleaning up four hours later, but really we ate the stuff too quickly to tell!! I think the lime juice helped it stay so fresh & green! I left seeds in from one of the peppers and included a hefty dose of cilantro. Nice, spicy, fresh guacamole!

This was a hit! I took a large bowl of this to a party and the guests ohhhed and ahhhhed. So many people try to make guacamole a complicated dish and it's really best when it's simple and clean like this recipe.
