A New Guacamole Recipe
Is it just me, or are most guacamole recipes strikingly similar?
Everyone claims to have the best guacamole recipe, but all of these recipes are kind of the same. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. Guacamole is awesome no matter what.
But I see no reason to post another recipe that’s just like the others.
This Guacamole Recipe Has Two Secret Ingredients
There is a Mexican restaurant in Minneapolis called Bar Abilene that is well-known for its guacamole. The servers there make it tableside, adding to the appeal.
Their guac is really, really good. The kind of dish that, upon tasting, you immediately want to try making yourself.
Considering that this restaurant makes the guacamole tableside right before your eyes, I found it easy to recreate it at home.
All the usual suspects are all there (avocados, onion, tomato, garlic and lime juice), but what makes this guacamole unique is the addition of green Tabasco sauce and Worcestershire sauce. Not a lot is used – just enough to give it a distinctive flavor. Amazing.
The Tabasco sauce adds just a touch of heat. And the Worcestershire sauce adds the drool-worthy umami that regular guacamole recipes are missing.

Cheap recipe tip: Keep your eye out for cheap avocados at the grocery store. When avocados are fully ripe, you can often find them for about $1.00 each. At this point, grocers slash prices because the avocados won’t last many more days.
