“Made it for my friends and family. They all loved it just left out beans, it was still good.” -KonnerGross

“Quick, healthy, and delicious!  I followed another reader’s advice and added chopped green chili’s to the sauce and baked the dish for 25 minutes rather than broil.  I was also able to keep the prep time near 20 minutes by using a veggie chopper (Vidalia Chop Wizard) to chop the onions and tomatoes.” -DSenzig

“Delicious! Loved this recipe! wasn’t a fan of the corn tortillas so next time I will try with flour tortillas instead. And will also try baking it like a casserole. Highly recommend this recipe!! Tasty and simple to make!” -Jmh0051

“I usually make double the sauce, add a large can of black beans to the mixture, and then fill 18 corn enchiladas. I also add chopped jalapeño peppers to spice it up. This recipe is fantastic – easy to make, and a crowd favorite.” -ChellieVA

“Great recipe. I added in some fresh mint, too.” -JeanV4

“Loved these the first time I tried them last summer, and I still think they are great! We just pour over ice cubes instead of crushing ice – just as good. Also use 3/4 tequila.” -GritsinNH

“These were great! I froze the watermelon first (also helps cut down on prep time). I also cut back on the sugar since the watermelon was so sweet (yum). Still think you do need to add sugar to bring out the flavor of the watermelon some more. Really tasty at the pool in the 100 degree heat!” -Roweena

“Instead of serving this poured over ice, we blended it with the ice to make a slushy drink. It was much, much better that way.” -LauraLeigh8

“This is a great recipe for an alternative to traditional guacamole.  My husband couldn’t get enough of it.  It was perfect appetizer before serving Fish Tacos with Lime Crema!” –jharned12

“Great guac – I mashed the avocado and subbed a jalapeno for the serrano since I had a bunch on hand. Wasn’t sure about the orange juice, but it worked – also gave me the idea to serve this with the Grilled Flank Steak with Chipotle-Orange Mojo recipe (same issue), which was a fantastic combo.” –sukeedog

“My teenager requested the avocado be more mashed next time.  But this was yummy as is.” –daneanp
