    I use a very similar recipe and substitute the salsa for fresh pico de gallo. It's great and tastes super fresh. When storing, put in a zip top bag and seal all of the air out of it to prevent browning. - 3/22/09

    This was really yummy! Since I'm the only one who eats guac in the house, I only used 1 avocado, 1/4 of lime, and added some chopped red onion, red pepper, and about a 1/2 tablespoon dry ranch seasoning. Yummy! - 8/21/08

    This is how I make mine. Very easy, very delicious. If you want to add extra ingredients, by all means do so. This is the base, not a blueprint.

    I have a black bean salad posted along the same lines.

    If you have more time, add more stuff. Otherwise, this is all about FAST and healthy!!! - 7/2/08

  • This is exactly how I make guac, except I add a couple of cloves of garlic pressed in. LOVE it! If you want to cut the calories in half with no real difference in taste, roast some broccoli, let it cool, then grind it fine in a processor. Equal parts broc and avocado, and you can't tell! - 2/12/14

  • This is how I make my guacamole, but we make our own salsa to add. The prepared salsa has too much sugar and too many preservatives for me. Making the salsa ourselves allows us to control the additives. - 12/17/09

    This sounds perfect except - I would add a tiny bit of red onion, chopped finely & some chopped fresh cilantro! - 6/26/08

    Reply from KIMBERLEIGH06 (6/30/08)
    The salsa I used last time I made it was cilantro based...so it was amazing! But when I'm making it on the fly on lunch, just throwing an avocado and the salsa in the blender works just fine.
