DO NOT add the water. It's not in the ingredient list and it shouldn't be necessary. If it's too thick for your taste, add more stock.

Good idea that I want to try, but I think the amount of veggie stock might be a little high. I would add until it reached the desired consistency. I would also cut down on the cumin until I tasted it because it can overpower the delicate flavor of avocado.

I was a little disappointed. This recipe doesn't look even remotely like the photo (note tomatoes are in the recipe, but not shown in photo). It came out more like flavorless watery guacamole dip. Now I have to go out and buy tortilla chips with salt.

The flavor of this was pretty good. I wanted it to be creamier. I would NOT use the water and add stock to desired consistency, as noted above. Maybe puree all the avocados and then just use some for garnish, instead. I made mine pretty spicy, so the cukes, avocado hunks and sour cream were a nice touch.
