The Diva's recipe for "Molecajete Guacamole" was recently allowed into the "Holy Guacamole" hall of fame at Guacamole University. (P.S. -- the Diva has a killer guacamole kit for gourmet type people - check it out here...).
EPIC FAIL alert: One time, the Diva was trying a new avocado - the Reed variety. It is really big, and round (like a cannon ball). She made a huge bowl of guacamole - one avocado filled a whole bowl.
