Several years ago I picked up a cookbook at my mother's home about authentic Mexican cooking and started perusing its pages. While I cannot remember the name of the book, I do remember the impression I had--what I thought was traditional Mexican cuisine was actually watered-down Mexican cuisine! It was eye-opening to become more familiar with unique ingredients (hello Jicama!), frequently-used produce (limes, limes and more limes) and interesting recipes associated with various regions.
Today over at Cafe Zupas I am sharing my recipe for guacamole, inspired by this experience and my love for Mexican food. In fact, whenever I'm traveling abroad, the first thing I crave upon returning is good, fresh, Mexican food. So grab a bag of good tortilla chips, a lawn chair and a cool drink and enjoy some great guacamole!
