craved creation: bazooka limon guacamole

Bazooka Limon Guacamole

Last month for my birthday we went to a great Mexican restaurant, El Vez, in the city with some friends. I had been there a couple times in the past for drinks, but had never had any food, so I was pretty psyched to try it out finally.

Something they’re known for is the many varieties of guacamole they offer — so obviously we had to get one! We ended up getting their “bazooka” limon guac as our appetizer and my world was subsequently changed forever.

I have to admit that the many, many times I’ve enjoyed guacamole in my life, it’s been pretty straight-forward. No unusual ingredients or textures, but usually the classic avocados, lime, cilantro, onion and garlic. On the other hand, this guac from El Vez had crazy things like goat cheese, fire-roasted tomatoes, chili flakes and pistachios in it — what?! Yes.

This left me no choice, I had to make this again at home.

Guac Prep

  1. Pull together your ingredients: avocados, limes, fire-roasted tomatoes, cilantro, goat cheese, red onion, garlic, pistachios and chili flakes
  2. Dice avocados and add to a mixing bowl
  3. Add lime juice, salt, pepper, chopped cilantro, diced onion and minced garlic
  4. Mix ingredients until well combined and guac is somewhat chunky in texture (i.e. to mash avocados completely)
  5. Add chili flakes and mix because you forgot to initially include them in the beginning — oops!
  6. Add your special guests to the party — diced tomatoes, crumbled goat cheese and chopped pistachios — mix until just combined
  7. Serve guac topped with more tomatoes, goat cheese, pistachios and fried garlic slices

I’ve been refraining from saying this the whole time, but holy guacamoleyou have to try this recipe, it’s too good not to try. The goat cheese and fire-roasted tomatoes add a nice rich element that I would never think to pair with avocado, but work surprisingly well together. Then the pistachios, conceptually a strange addition, but it definitely adds a great textural element to an otherwise smooth food, so I’m definitely a fan!

It’s a bit early for Cinco de Mayo, but you should definitely tuck this one away for a fun celebration or when you’re having guests over or when you’re going to a potluck — it’s definitely special. Also, if you’re in the Philly area, you can stop by El Vez for some of their other guac offerings, if not you can certainly get a taste of it with this!
