From New Mexico and this is authentic....other reviewers must be from New York City! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Needs lime juice, when I tried it it did not taste "outstanding" but ok. I like my own old recipe better. item not reviewed by moderator and published
With this recipe, I added 1 tb onion powder, 1 tb garlic, granulated. 3 Tb Lime juice. I want my Guacamole to have some zing. A little more cayenne pepper . item not reviewed by moderator and published
Try using some red onion instead of a brown or white one. Also adding some jalapeno, and, you have to add either lemon or lime juice. I use whichever I have on hand. I too am not a cilantro fan so I use just a little bit of it and some parsley. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Waaaaay too much cilantro. Probably the worst guac I've ever made. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent ! I added lime juice for a zip. Very easy item not reviewed by moderator and published
Needs something for the browning. Lemon is better than lime, and Fruit Fresh is better than both. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this guacamole dip! I will now be using this recipe from here on out. I make guacamole every week and I love this recipe because of the fresh herb taste and kick from the peppers. I was using a good bit of garlic and cayenne in my guacamole, but you don't need it with this recipe. Perfection! item not reviewed by moderator and published
It was good, but something was missing. It needed a little lime or lemon juice. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this recipe, have made it several times since I found it in an issue of FN Magazine. The only thing is you really do want to add some lime juice to this one so you don't have brown guacamole...and this is a very basic recipe so add garlic if you want, play with it. I just like my guac plain and simple this is sooooo good! item not reviewed by moderator and published
As mentioned before me, AB's recipe is still my favorite, that thing gets requested all the time from family and friends. This recipe just didn't deliver for me, it lacked the true guacamole taste and refreshing quality. Plus as mentioned by everyone before me there is no lime. item not reviewed by moderator and published
May I suggest substituting flat-leaf parsley for the cilantro for us? item not reviewed by moderator and published
no garlic, no lemon or lime juice, no good:( disappointing. item not reviewed by moderator and published
No lime to keep it from browning? No thanks. Besides - I've had AB's guac and it is amazing. http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/guacamole-recipe/index.html item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a great recipe! However, I would squeeze a lime over it to keep it from browning. item not reviewed by moderator and published
