    Also try adding corn nuts! Sounds strange, but I had this at an upscale Mexican restaurant and those corn nuts add amazing flavor and texture.

    roasted garlic and cilantro along with freshly squeezed lime juice are all a must for a good guacamole

    Another thing you can do to keep it from turning brown is to put the avocado pit in the bowl with the guacamole until you are ready to serve. I always add some garlic to the dip as well.

    Martha, How could you NOT include lime juice in a guacamole recipe ??? I like to add a pinch of Mexican oregano, too.

    Adding a tablespoon of lime juice (or lemon juice) will help keep guacamole from turning brown. If not serving immediately, cover with plastic wrap so that wrap is right on top of the guacamole.

    Always remember to get a RIPE avocado. A ripe avocado will slightly yield to pressure when you push on it and has a dark skin. Also, purchase more avocados than you think you will need, in case you get a bad avocado. The unripe avocado is not very flavorful and will not make a good guacamole.
