OMG this is not fair, they cost an average of 1 a piece here!! I guess I must try and plant one of those pits and see if we can grow them at home....

My guacamole contain

mashed avocado
finely chopped scallion
chopped cilantro
lime juice
chopped and seeded tomato
white pepper

I found that salt is not necessary in guacamole, the flavour seems to be much fuller and pleasant without it.

.39 each? YIKES! They are like $1 or more here and they aren't that good.

At .39 I'd have a serious avacado-eating problem!

I knew when I saw the price of avocados, it had to be California. Ours, when on sale, are .99 each. We treasure them though.

Texas, I pretty much like avacados no matter how you slice em. I would add very little and not over mash. Some folks like it chunky, others don't. I add very little, some lemon juice (not lime) chopped onions (red) , if you like add hot sauce. I like to taste the avacado, and on occasion I'll add diced tomatoes. Some people might add salsa and or sour cream. Make it your own, to your taste.

MIsh, I agree, your idea is a good one.Avocado's are just about my favorite thing, just a sprinkle of salt and I eat it like that...Yummy and the taste is heaven Although, I do like my dad's avocado dip,it's a staple for my family...but an aquired taste for others...

Leaving the avacado pit (whole) in the serving dish will prevent the guacamole from turning brown- just make sure no one tries to eat it!!! A trick I learned from a lady at work!

At .39 apiece, I'd just peel them and eat them with a bit of French or Catalina dressing. (My apologies to the gourmands out there who don't like bottled dressing.)
