Delicious and so easy to make. I didn't use Tabasco or parsley but you don't need it - you can make any variation of guacamole as you like! Love it!

Yum! It is a perfect summerdish. Nice indeed with a cold beer!! Especially when you scrape the last bits of guacamole of your plate with the chips mmm This is so very much better then the 'glow in the dark'-green substance from the supermarket; and so easy to prepare!
