Guacamole feels like a getaway in a bowl.
Each dip into the creamy avocado conjures memories of poolside margaritas, beachy sunsets, romantic guitar music wafting with the breeze off the Sea of Cortez … okay, we’re turning off the computer and heading to the airport now.
Blame the itch to jet off to sunnier climes on Ryan Seacrest, who recently posted a dreamy photo on Instagram of an oceanfront infinity pool at Las Ventanas Al Paraiso, A Rosewood Resort in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, where he celebrated his December birthday in a private beach villa — but it’s Seacrest’s seaside snack of tortilla chips and dip that really got our attention.
“If ur home this weekend watching the globes or football, here’s the greatest guacamole recipe — stole it from my fav hotel @lasventanasalparaiso,” the American Idol host shared.
It appears fairly traditional — cilantro, jalapeño, lime, you get the gist — but we’ll be testing out the recipe from the hotel’s executive chef Fabrice Guisset in time to watch Saturday’s SAG Awards.
We’re sensing a trend here: Not only was guacamole one of the most searched-for recipes of 2013 but it seems that nearly every star from Eva Longoria to Kyle MacLachlan has their own proprietary blend. Guacamole bar, anyone?
