When it comes to store bought guacamole just say no! It's so easy to make - the only hard part is finding nice ripe avocados... :) Nikko

When avocados are expensive the frozen coarsely chopped avocados/guacample at Costco are fabulous. The containers each are like 10 avocados and half the price of fresh avocados even here in California. Then you just add some red onion chopped, diced meaty tomato, jalapenos (I prefer the red ripe ones) or better yet Serranos as they have some heat, minced garlic, and cilantro leaves diced, plus a squeeze of lime juice. If your tomato is juicy, just squeeze out a bit of the jel and seeds so you don't have soupy guac. Heirloom tomatoes tend to be juicy if beefsteaks. Ox Hearts are nice and meaty. Store bought regular tomatoes tend to be hard unless you buy the Campari or Plum type at Costco which are really quite tasty. BTW to keep the guac from discolouing place the pit in the middle of it. I so agree with Nikko coarse guacamole is best! Shanti/Mary-Anne
