    This is very similar to the low fat recipe I use. I add chopped fresh cilantro (or the paste from the tube) AND I add nonfat plain yogurt. The yogurt cuts the fat per serving and makes the guac more creamy. I add about 1/4 cup to one avocado - 1/7/09

    This would be good to replace cucumber with jicama too and add some cilantro and maybe jalepeno for some heat - 2/9/09

    I never tried this but on TV, a chef was saying to blanch the avocado for 5 seconds in boiling water, then icy cold water and the avocado won't brown...worth a try!...will keep you posted! - 6/21/09

    Delicious! I didn't have any lemons so I substituted vinegar, apple juice and coriander which thankfully was a perfect substitute. This was my first time eating guacamole and I really liked it. I had homemade pita chips with it, mmmm :) - 11/7/08

    Even with lemon, the guacamole can brown - the fail-safe non browning trick is to cover with ceran wrap and PRESS the wrap right onto the top of the guacamole. I hardly ever use lemon and it never browns when I store it :) - 2/9/09

    Absolutely out of this world. I've only had guacamole one other time at a restaurant and I really didn't care for it. I decided to give it a try one more time, this time making it fresh at home. I'm so glad I did. This recipe rocks! - 1/26/09

    Adding cucumber is brilliant. I've been searching for cucumber recipes lately. When I made this I also included a small tomato and a dash of cayenne. It was wonderful. - 9/2/08

    My family and I loved this. I did add greek yogurt (fat free) as I have started adding to everything I want a little creamier, and it did the trick. I also use this as a spread for hamburgers (turkey burgers) and sandwiches instead of mayo, delicious! - 6/30/10
