Golden Guacamole


We’ve come to love tequila so much that we want it in everything—from traditional and exotic cocktails to marinades and bastes, side dishes, guacamoles and even desserts.


Our easy end-of-the-week recipe combines fresh ingredients with a few tablespoons of tequila, a perfect twist for your Fourth of July celebration.

Ingredients should be available at your local natural and organic food store. Just remember: Recipes with alcohol that are not cooked, such as salad dressings or dips, should not be served to those under 21.
