"This is a true Tex-Mex recipe concocted by a distant relative stationed at the Alamo nearly 160 years ago. According to family lore, he was out looking for some good tomatoes when Santa Ana attacked the now famous Texas landmark. Luckily, our relative kept this recipe in the lining of his coon-skin cap, and both he and his avocado dip lived to fight another day. Years later, near death from an infected Chihuahua bite, he looked deep into his son's eyes, and with his last breath, uttered the familiar phrase "Remember... the...guacamole.""

"VERY GOOD we loved it. When I have leftover Guacamole I put one of the pits in the center of the dip and it stays fresh longer."
"I have made this version for years. It is fantastic. I always use white onion and a touch of Mexican oregano. Guacamole should be chunky."
"I don't know if I enjoyed the quacamole or the intro to this recipe the most. Both are great!"
"You are sooo good Mark. Loved everything about it. I used cilantro. I also put the avocado pit in the bowl to keep it from turning brown...works everytime. Thanks for another good recipe ;)"
"We were going to a poolside BBQ and I had picked up some store bought guacamole to go with our fajitas. My husband stared at it in horror and anounced "You can't take that!" "These are native Floridians honey, they don't even know what guacamole is," I replied. Well the guacamole purist had his way and we made homemade guacamole, using this recipe. It was great guacamole and everyone loved it! I would recommend this recipe to anyone who likes avocados, it is perfect for the afficiando and beginner taste buds."
"The best guacamole i've ever eaten."
"this truly is a great recipe!!!!!!!!!verytasty!!! i too enjoyed the intro- very colorful!!!!!!!! polly"
"Excellent! I must admit, the recipe caught my attention because of the creative intro, but the taste is fabulous! I have made it twice in the last 6 days, and both groups I have served it to have raved about it. I think this might be one of my new favorites..."
"The chips were warm, the beer was cold, the guacamole was great!! =)"
"I have this EXACT same recipe for guacamole, and I am sooo addicted to it! I ALWAYS have some stashed in the fridge. It's good served with a little salsa on the side, too...and of course, an ice cold beer!!:) Great recipe!"
"This guacamole was really good. I have not really had much experience making guacamole. But the directions were very easy to follow and the guacamole was great. This a must for football weekends"
"Super good! Made this more than once and its SO good-everyone raves!"
"I have never made guacamole before because I am the only one in my family that eats it but your recipe looked so fresh and easy I had to try it! It was absolutely wonderful!! I used Roma tomatoes and added the cilantro with a fresh jalepeno pepper! I shared it with some friends and we all loved it!! I went to the store for more avacodos to make it again! Thanks for sharing this recipe."
"Everyone agreed, this is by far the best Guacamole I have ever made. Served with tortilla chips and your Cheese Enchilads with Sour Cream Sauce and you have an excellent meal. Thanks for sharing this. :-)"
"I will definitely be using lime rather than lemon with avocados in the future. We had this with nacho chips last night for a late snack. I plan to finish it off as part of a Mexican menu tomorrow. Thanks for sharing this recipe Mark! I used my salsa maker to blend/chop the ingredients and ended up with a semi-chunky guacamole. Very good!"
"I could sit down with a bowl of this and just eat it by the spoonful! Witty intro - sold me there first :)"
"Wonderful! I served this as an appitizer at my cinco de mayo dinner. My guests loved it."
"excellent recipe. Never again will I resort to those awful prepared spice mixes that you add to avocados. This is so much better."
"LOVED IT!!! Although we have eaten guacamole too many times to count, this was the first time I have attempted to make it. And it was a hit! Definitely left the avacadoes on the chunky side and when I thought I had added enough cilantro, I added more! I kept the avacado pit in the guacamole to keep it fresh and I can't wait to finish off the leftovers!"
