i don't want to drink my guacamole, i want to dip chips in it. i love the veg community but sometimes i wish it was more like my southern roots - accepting and loving of big booties and people who aren't afraid to EAT SOME FREAKIN CHIPS!

This is overall a good recipe. However, it seemed more like tomato-less gazpacho than drinkable guacamole. So, I doubled the garlic (and possibly 1-2 add'l cloves would be good), added black pepper, a little more salt and some chunks of stale bread. It is really refreshing on a hot summer day.
