Traditional Guacamole

Traditional Guacamole

"Do you want to add guacamole?" Is that even a valid question?! Of course we want guacamole...pile it on! The best guacamole we've had is made with fresh avocado, and mixed in a flavor-enhancing molcajete. Used for centuries by Mexican cooks, this ancient form of mortar and pestle uses the rough surface of volcanic stone to more efficiently grind and release flavorful oils from vegetables and spices.
