Top Shelf Guacamole (Cantina Laredo's)

Lynn Dine


Awhile ago I went to lunch at Cantina Laredo's and tried their table side prepared guacamole, which I normally don't eat the guacamole, not a fan, but just loved this one, maybe Guacamole is growing on me, lol. There were several news videos (from different cities) on to watch them make it, so I am including a link:, which is from Cantina Laredo's restaurant.
