Mexico is one of my favorite vacation spots. Every time I’m there, I must try the various homemade versions of guacamole. While visiting Mexico this summer, I had the most amazing time at Loupe’s house. She is a local from Carmen de Playa. We spent hours talking and mostly cooking. She showed me how she makes her guacamole. I explained to her what I do and that I’m all about transforming dishes into healthier options. She gave me some tips on how I can make my version of Guacamole even better.
Thank you, Loupe, for your tips and inspiration!
