Call me biased but the best guacamole I’ve ever devoured was whipped up by The Mr. in a flash. Hailing from the heart of Texas where Mexican food and Tex Mex abounds, it made good sense for me to pick up some cooking tips from him.

    You totally need an avocado masher. Sounds stupid, but I love it!

    I eat mashed avo with tortilla chips almost every night when I get home from work. My husband and I like to snack while we cook. :)

    Oh I must try your version, you added a little cumin to it, nice! And bravo to nice photos, it’s always hard with dip especially green ones!

    Great recipe, tried it today. I have to admit that I often used guacamole mix to make it. I know, shame on me, but never again thanks to your easy recipe!
