The Best Ever Guacamole

"This is the tastiest Guacamole. Simple, yet delicious. I was told that this recipe lets the avacado taste shine, some recipes add several spices....cumin, chili powder, etc. I was hesitant, (to make such a bland sounding recipe) but gave it a try. It really is delicious. Use avacados that yield to gentle pressure....not too soft."

    This dip is delicious. Exactly what I was looking for in a guac. I used black pepper because I don't have white pepper, and I used lemon juice because I didn't have lime juice. Still, it's the avocado that counts, and it really does shine through in this recipe.

    Honesty, I have never cared for the taste of guacamole but after tasting this recipe I have changed my mind. It was delicious and I was pleasantly surprised.

    Too easy and absolutely delicious!! Next time I will double or triple the recipe. Oh, I chilled it for about an hour which seemed plenty to make it tasty enough for us to devour it in about 20 minutes. Thanks.

    Without a doubt the best avaocado dip recipe I have made, simple, yet elegant. However, because it spotlights the avocado taste, it is a must to have very good tasting avocados.

    Like it says, this is the best guacamole ever. I used to add everything in my tex-mex arsenal to my guacamole (tomato,cilantro,spices, etc) but since trying this recipe, this is the only one I will ever make. This has a clean taste that lets the avocados truly shine. This came together fast and everyone loves it.Thanks for posting!


<p>Love to cook, my daughters do also. I was introduced to RecipeZaar by my oldest DD and I am addicted to it. <br /><br />I live in East Texas, and sometimes some of the exotic ingredients in some of the recipes I want to make present quite a challenge - <br /><br />I started cooking early and have always enjoyed finding new recipies and making menus - but RecipeZaar has taken this to a whole new level. <br /><br />Pick A Chef Banner: <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><br /><br />I Was Adopted banner: <br /><img src= alt= /></p>
