To start, our chefs munched on an Edible Landscape

Homemade guacamole, green bell peppers, sour cream, refried beans and red salsa made the Mexican flag.

The tables were set with individual guacamole stations (each with half of an avocado and cups of previously-measured ingredients) where each chef made their own guacamole.

Our guest chefs were extremely focused and intent on making the best homemade guacamole ever!

We learned a little bit about guacamole, salsa verde, tomatillos, cilantro and some of the other key ingredients.

Our chefs were encouraged to taste their guacamole along the way to ensure that it was seasoned “just right.”

They discovered that carrot sticks and julienned bell peppers make yummy (and healthy) dipping “chips” for guacamole and salsa.
