Tacos
Growing up taco night always meant Old El Paso with its distinctive Mexican seasoning and "sauce." People always ask, "How can you improve on something perfect?" Well, I suggest experimenting because you miss one hundred percent of the shots you don't take. Potentially, I could create the world's greatest ground beef taco from this week's recipe challenge (likely not). Click here to see the Cozy Comfort Food Recipes story.

Fresh Guacamole
Because of my boyfriend's deep love for avocados, this dish is probably one of the things that I make the most.  I've tried almost every variation there is: with and without cilantro, substituting a pinch of cumin or summer herbs like refreshing mint or sweet-smelling basil. I've used scallions instead of red onion for a softer taste and added chunks of ripe mango for a more tropical dish. Spicy, mild or ridiculously hot, this dip is always a party favorite — especially if served with some strong margaritas.Here is a basic recipe that will serve as a solid foundation for you to play around with some of the variations above. And as the name suggests, it's best made fresh and served immediately.Click here to see Recipe SWAT Team: Dips.

Guacamole del Sur
Yes, that's right, there are grasshoppers in this guacamole. Grasshoppers add a pleasant crunch to this regional take on traditional guacamole from chef Richard Sandoval of the La Sandia Restaurants. In Oaxaca, these delicacies are known as chapulines. They may be a little hard to come by, but a good bet is to try a Mexican grocery store. See all appetizer recipes.

Nancy Zaslavsky serves this chunky guacamole recipe with one or two table salsas, so she tries to avoid putting the salsa ingredients in the guacamole so that the avocado taste is front and center. — Yasmin Fahr

chunky guacamole
I love guacamole. I am of the spicy and garlicky crowd — until last summer when I made (and ate) the best guacamole ever. I was working with a recipe derived from Rosa Mexicano and learned that there was no garlic in it. Instead, the white onion (which is more difficult to find) was combined with the jalapeño and half of the mixture was worked to a paste in a molcajete. The avocadoes and chopped tomatoes (I know, a crime my Mexican friend Mercedes says) were then mixed in with the remaining onion-jalapeño mixture. As white onions are more difficult to find, I now use finely chopped yellow onion. Tomatoes not in season? Try substituting finely chopped sundried tomatoes instead (and cilantro optional). Serve with thick-cut yellow or blue corn chips (and a refreshing Blood Orange Margarita, of course).

Guacamole.
Guac. So simple. Avocados that are firm but with that slight give, some chopped tomatoes, lemon juice, salt and pepper and you're set. Too easy to buy premade. I go heavy on lemon juice.
