  1. OK, guacamole fanatics I've been eating it for years and I used to work in a Mexican restaurant when I was younger in the 70s here we go avocados lime juice diced Cerritos Chile no seeds Salt diced onion diced tomatoes remove the seeds and a little bit of garlic powder much better than raw garlic .. please try this I guarantee if you enjoy guacamole you'll love it and send me a message if you enjoyed it thank you

  2. Word of advice, use garlic powder instead of whole garlic; it gets the flavor throughout the dip better, and just seems to taste better than raw garlic in guacamole.

  3. Never ate it or made it before but it always looked good, and I like avocados. So I made a double batch, because avocados, tomatoes and limes on sale, takes me 3 times as long to get everything prepped and chopped up just the way I want. Followed the recipe faithfully except backed off the garlic and cumin a tad and forgot the cayenne. Too much for me, but next time I might use a little. After 1 hour in fridge, tasted it, tasted sharply oniony and didn't think I was going to like it. After overnight in the fridge, I broke out the blue chips and put some in a bowl. It is delicious, something that will grow on me. And so good for you.

  4. Not sure what this is, but real guacamole has neither cumin nor cayenne pepper. Maybe in some regions jalapeños might be used but I’ve never heard of it. Authentic guacamole uses chilies and waaay more cilantro.

  5. Ive been using this recipe for years ///  It is the B o m B .I overlook the fact that Food Network  pushes the Sodomite agenda  and they are Souled -out to the Satanic Hollywood system.

  6. I'm going to be "that guy" and say that Chipotle's guacamole recipe is the best. Nothing will ever beat it. I will also never understand why people put tomatoes in their guac!

  7. I love good eats but I'm sorry Alton but that recipe is just wrong. Anyone looking for a good guac recipe: seed a serano pepper, and finly chop it up with and cilantro and onion. add lime juice and salt to the ingredients in a pile and repeatedly crush with the side of a knife and chop until it's well combined. add to fresh mashed avocado, mix until well combined, add a little more lime juice and maybe some pepper on top.

  8. He puts wayyy too much stuff in there, do you even taste the avocado anymore? You can probably us potatoes instead of avocado and it tastes the same with all the spices and extra stuff he used in there. Less is more.

  9. i'm extremely white, so i add sour cream and sometimes a little cream cheese into my guac, i like it very creamy and it gives it some unique properties, like it makes for an amazing sandwich spread when paired with ham or bacon.

  10. I put parsley and lemon in because I had to use it up and it's actually pretty good. Prefer lime and cilantro.  This is also the first time I put in tomatoes.  The cumin idea is awesome.  I love garlic but one time I accidentally left it out and haven't put it in since.

  11. I shudder at even the mere mention of parsley in guac….all it needs is avocado, lime, salt, and CILANTRO. I love onion, tomato and jalapeño as much as the next guy, but guac should be about the avocado.
