Crunchy Herbed Guacamole with Radishes and Chives

January 31, 2013

Super Bowl Sunday is around the corner which means the consumption of a lot of chips, dips, sliders and more! No appetizer spread is complete without a good guacamole, and we particularly like Chef George Duran's Crunchy Herbed Guacamole with Radishes and Chives. Chef Duran (of Food Network and TLC Ultimate Cake Off) thinks his guacamole recipe stands out amongst the crowd for two very delicious reasons: his includes a fresh medley of diced radishes and chives, adding another level of texture; and his guacamole is prepared authentically, as it would be in a traditional Latin household by means of a granite molcajete (like this one from IMUSA) to mince and mix ingredients. This method of mixing in a molcajete makes both a delicious guacamole, but a lovely presentation as well (and no extra bowls to clean up!).
