As my husband proclaimed,"This is a 10 star", I worried that I might have to take him to the hospital. He had eaten 2/3 of the bowl so essentially two full avocados! Yikes! I used all of the ingredients - including the optional ones - with lots of cumin and chopped jalapenos. While I followed the ingredients exactly I did not follow the instructions; I prefer an overall chunky texture so didn't use a blender to puree it, and think hearts of palm have more texture than flavor so left them in large slivered pieces. Next time I'll need to ration this like green gold because it's fantastic - essentially a superb guacamole recipe with the unique addition of the hearts of palm.
