"My mom learned how to make this from a local of Guadalajara Mexico. It is very simple to make and quite delicious! It's always a big hit when I have guests over. Great for a margherita party! Serve with tortilla chips (try Healthy Baked Corn Tortilla Chips (Homemade)). Out of necessity, I have omitted the tomatoes and it still tastes great. I have also added a few tbsps of fresh chopped cilantro when I have it on hand."

"This is the same as my recipe, except I add 1/4 of a bunch of chopped fresh cilantro! Not sure if the cilantro is authentic, but good! 3 tips** 1) keep the pits, don't throw them away. after you make the guac, push the pits down in the guac, it will not trun brown (the top will turn a little if you don't put plastic wrap directly on top) **2) if a fresh jalapeno is too hot for you, try jalapenos from a jar. Slight heat, still great! **3) when you cut open the tomatoes, remove the seeds for a less watery product. And yes, NEVER buy guac ever again! ENJOY!"
"This is my first ever review on this site. This recipe warranted a great review. Best guacamole ever!! I've made it twice now, exactly how the directions stated and both times were delicious! The second time I put the guac in a seven layer dip. I didn't have to change a thing. I didn't add any cilantro and I love cilantro... but this recipe really doesn't need anything extra."
"Made this for Let's Party 2011 and I did add a little cilantro and fresh garlic but otherwise followed the instructions. Delicious! Served this with recipe#76043#76043, recipe#370127#370127 and recipe#133436#133436. Thank you for posting the recipe."
"This is definitely the good stuff. Made as directed, along with your tortilla chips - thank you so much for that recipe as well.
Unfortunately, I used this experience to learn the hazard of touching your eyes after mincing jalapenos. Never again. ><"
"Absolutely loved this! I served it by the spoonfuls and dropped them into tortilla scoops. Topped with some chopped black olives. Really good!"
"great tasty and oh so easy.."
"I made this recipe for a Super Bowl party we attended this year. It was a hit! I came home with an empty bowl! My only deviation was to leave the avocado a little chunky, other than that I followed it exactly. I will be making this again very soon!"
"I thought the recipe was very easy to make but full of pleasure and a great taste when I made homemade tortilla chips to go with the guacamole."
"I've always bought my guacamole because I was intimidated by the avacado. I couldn't find any at my local market, so I broke down and bought some avacadoes. I searched Recipezaar for a highly rated recipe, and viola, I found this one. I never knew it was so easy to make guac, but now I do. I followed the directions, with exception of the jalopeno, as my wife and her family do not like spicy food. After mixing everything together, I took a store bought tortilla chip and tasted it, and WOW!!!!!!!! I knew I couldn't eat much, as I had to preserve it for a recipe for dinner, but I wound up licking the spoon and bowl like it was cake batter. YUM!!! I'll never buy that store bought junk again, promise!"
"Finally a recipe that does not add dairy ! This is the way we make it here in Texas- keep it simple and let the flavor of the avocado be the star !"
"This was great guacamole! I helped my mom make it and we thought it could use some garlic so we added one chopped clove. We served it with cheese quesadillas and we had some salsa along and it was great. Thanx."
"wonderful guacamole-so easy-i made this as directed and i served it ith store-bought chips-thanks emily."
"This is great guacamole. I used a bit of cumin too, and no pepper, but otherwise the same. Made for ZWT4"
"This is a WONDERFUL recipe! Love guacamole and this is the perfect amount of each ingredient! I served this onto a piece of seared tuna and it was delicious! Thank you so much. Made for ZWT4 while travelling around with my Babes."
"GREAT Guac! And nice, clear directions. I've been making guacamole for years with fresh garlic, and no onions; but made as written, this recipe is a PERFECT balance of flavors! I used a jalapeno including the seeds, and the heat level was still fairly mild - for us. I served with organic blue corn tortilla chips. It was hard to stop eating this! Thanks for a great guacamole, Emily Elizabeth. Made for ZWT4 Zingo."
"Very nice! It is easy and delicious! Thanks for sharing! I prepared this for Zingo round of ZWT4."
"Just such a great tasting guacamole and so darn pleasurable I thought I could easily have enjoyed the whole bowl full myself. I added a fresh jalapeno with a nice amount of heat to it, with the addition of lime juice to smooth the taste a truly great taste sensation. I kept to the recipe exactly adding diced Roma tomatoes from the garden. I could of added the "usual" suspects to this dish, but didn't~just followed what the recipe was and we couldn't of been more overjoyed. The salt really does bring out the true flavor of the avocado so this is a a must if salt is not a problem for you. Thank you Emily! Made for *ZWT4* July 2008."
"I've been on a quest for the perfect guac, and this one may just have ended my search. Very simple preparation and all the flavors blend beautifully. Just enough heat with the jalapeno. I admit I ate every bite for my lunch last Saturday, and have the ingredients to make it again tonight! Made for ZWT 4 Zingo / Daffy Daffodils"
"This is a very good guacamole. I followed ingredients per recipe except I didn't have tomatoes or jalapeno so I used my homemade salsa which has both. I love the lime juice instead of lemon juice. Made for ZWT4 for the Cookin Cats."
"Absolutely great guacamole! I did add a healthy dash of Tabasco, as we like it. Served with pita crisps."
