Guac-Off Recipe Winner: Congratulations Miss Crider!

Guacamole Recipe

 

There are many, many guacamole recipes out there these days. From the inspiring selections at restaurants to the innovative concoctions we all create at home! But one thing is for certain, everyone I’ve talked to about their own creations always say, “I make the best guac, ever!” So through all of these conversations, our Bonjour + Hola team decided a few years ago it was a must to host a Guac-Off! And each year, it has grown and increasingly gotten more competitive. Hola #guacswag!

What makes the guac really stand out when our guests are voting with a glass of K-J AVANT in-hand? That would be the distinctive flavors, the energetic colors mixed in between and the overall memorable taste after plopping that chip into your mouth.

And Bonjour + Hola’s Guac-Off winner this year, Katie Crider {creator of Guac #4}, went above and beyond with her recipe. Combining various Thai-inspired flavors, spices and colors galore in between — all of the guests went ga-ga!

Her guac was so delicious and memorable that the Bonjour + Hola team thought it was a must to share the recipe with you!:
