This renowned guacamole is by far one of the most famous dishes at Dos Caminos. In each of the seven Dos Caminos locations, the guacamole is prepared tableside in a lava stone molcajete according to each guest’s specifications. The spice level can be raised or lowered by adjusting the amount of chile you add.

In a medium size bowl, use the back of a spoon to mash 1 tablespoon of the cilantro, 1 teaspoon onion, 1 teaspoon of minced chile, and 1/2 teaspoon salt together against the bottom of the bowl.

Add the avocados and gently mash them with a fork until chunky-smooth. Fold the remaining cilantro, onion, and chile into the mixture. Stir in tomatoes and lime juice, taste to adjust the seasonings, and serve with a basket of warm corn tortilla chips or veggie sticks, for a lighter option.
