Hack your Guac on National Guacamole Day

September 16 is National Guacamole Day!

Guacamole was created by the Aztecs in Mexico and not much has changed since. We’re still using very similar recipes!  Why not take it up a notch? The owners at Cocina 214 have simple advice – try adding toppings to your guac, just like you would an ice cream sundae. Toppings such as mango, blue cheese and habanero peppers add pizzazz to the subtle flavor of avocados.
