Today is National Guacamole Day! We’re happy to honor this delicious dip as it’s one we serve weekly in casa de Rural Mom! Thanks to our friends at IMUSA, we have a special recipe with a twist to help you celebrate this festive occasion, George Duran’s signature recipe for Crunchy Herbed Guacamole. Spicy chipotle sauce and radishes take this guac over the edge to deliver you a brand new taste experience!
When you’re making guacamole, it helps to have the best, helpful tools. Leading Hispanic cookware brand IMUSA offers tools that make cooking authentic Mexican cuisine easy and fun. This recipe uses the IMUSA Granite Molcajete, which is large enough to grind up a party-size batch of guacamole, then mix and serve it in the same bowl.
Made from ultra-durable natural granite, this mortar & pestle extracts essential oils from herbs and spices – dried & fresh. Granite’s nonporous qualities prevent it from absorbing those oils, keeping the flavor in your food and not in the tool. The weight of the stone provides stability and makes pounding a cinch. You’ll find it at Target for $19.99
Invite your friends, break out the tortilla chips, and enjoy this fantastic recipe!
