Party plans? Think guacamole!

Guacamole is the ideal dish for an evening with friends or game night!

Looking for a way to make your evening a success? Why not have a guacamole bar?

We’re all familiar with the salad bar. Simply apply the same idea to guacamole. Prepare your ingredients (onions, coriander, peppers, tomatoes, etc.), and let everyone make their own guacamole. Traditionally, it’s eaten with corn chips. Instead, surprise your guests by offering raw vegetables, pita bread or even shrimp to dip in their guacamole. Guaranteed success!
