I add 2 teaspoons of Harissa ( a Moroccan spice) and it is even more flavorful. I really like this recipe!

I used the 4 teaspoons of lime juice and it was way too much. I would try less next time.

Great, simple and my wife loved it. I do not really eat avo and guacamole but this was delicious.

My husband says this is better than the restaurant. I omitted the cumin because I don't like the flavor. It was delicious!

There would never be garlic or cumin in this recipe. You would just use white onion,lime juice ,diced seeded tomato, jalapino, celantro and salt.

I doubled the recipe with the exception of the cilantro (I personally don't like cilantro that much) added another clove of garlic and used the juice of one large lime (almost 4 TBSP). This is an easy and awesome guacamole recipe. The addition of the cumin really did it for me, I make guacamole a lot and always felt as if it was missing something, now I know what that something was. Thanks!

This recipe is a great base to get it right! Add chopped cilantro, tomatoes, extra jalapeño, sea salt.....

It seemed too salty to me. I added tomatoes and a little chopped celery just to use it up. It was good. Next timeI'll cut the salt down.

Added a diced tomatoe, 2 more cloves of garlic, used fresh cilantro and instead of the chilie I used 4 or five drops of key lime Jamaican hot sauce and some ground pepper. Perfect!!

Simple and excellent! If you or your guests do not care for cilantro be careful with the amount specified. Some salt may also be required, but personal preferences will prevail. As a twist one might also add 6-8 ounces of diced tomatoes. But excellent as-is, my son and I loved it with the jalapenos!

I added a small Roma tomato. I thought it tasted better the second day and used it on a hamburger...yummy.
