“I am surprised how difficult it is to find a genuine guacamole recipe. No need for mayo or sour cream or all the other additives. This is the original, handed down generations, yet the most simple basic way to make Guacamole. I even make it better than my Mother in Law, which is a hard act to follow. :) Make this recipe and you will never go back. Hope you enjoy this like all my friends and family do.”
