I know I’ve promised my newly instated “Wordless Wednesday” entries but this Wednesday cannot be wordless. Not when I’ve recently spent Saturday afternoon with the two women behind Too Hot Tamales: Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken.
The California Avocado Commission invited me along with other Southern California food bloggers to partake in a “Guacamole Challenge” Top Chef style, and a nice lunch that Susan and Mary Sue cooked for us, while offering insight on cooking techniques and cuisine. I mustn’t forget the cornucopia of cocktails to quench our thirst: margaritas, sangrias and mojitos! The event all took place at Cuidad, which is owned by Susan and Mary Sue and boasts modern and upscale Mexican cuisine. So good!
The duo cooked:
Crispy California Avocado Taco
California Avocado, Bacon, and Tomato Salad
Chicken and California Avocado Skillet Chilaquiles
California Avocado and Mango with Yogurt
California Avocado and Orange Liquido with a Lavender Shortbread Cookie
The Guacamole Challenge was a blast! I had the pleasure of teaming up with Jen from Domestic Divas Blog. After three minutes of ingredient review and five very short minutes of guacamole making, Jen and I received 2nd place! I’ll be posting the recipe shortly friends.
I kindly thank the California Avocado Commission for inviting me to this fun and interactive event, and thanks to Susan and Mary Sue for their generosity and delicious lunch!
