Rick Bayless on Frontera: Margaritas, Guacamoles, and Snacks

Keywords: FronteraMargaritasGuacamoles

Some combinations are just meant to be, like peanut butter and jelly, cookies and milk, and of course, margaritas and guacamole. Rick Bayless has brought Mexican cuisine to the forefront of American dining for more than 30 years, but now he’s written a book to specifically celebrate the pure joy of a tequila-filled evening accompanied by a perfectly mashed avocado-based delicacy.

Bayless has written numerous cookbooks, but this one was meant to be the ultimate crowd-pleaser. "When I ask people what they make out of all those other books that I wrote they say margaritas, guacamole  it’s the thing that everybody loves and everybody wants to have good recipes for and I wanted to help people have an understanding of how to make a classic guacamole but then kind of make it their own by working in seasonal ingredients," he says.
