Garlicky Twisted Gaby Guac

My favorite read of quarantine has been What’s Gaby Cooking’s newest cookbook, “Eat What you Want!” Again, makes me wonder why I am just starting my relationship with her and how I don’t own the others yet!

As I’ve made my way through her book, I have been saving her guacamole recipe for Cinco de Mayo. It was so wonderful, I was forced to make it again just a couple nights later. My partner in quarantine declared it best ever, and I agree. Gaby, I love you so much, but I’ve made a few tweaks to your recipe. Thank you for this most outstanding starting point!

Best served with a sprinkle of Trader Joe’s Chili-Lime seasoning and a giant Ranch Water.
