No matter the upcharge, we’re all usually on the same page when it comes to guacamole – yes, please! No one can resist a hearty bowl of guacamole, especially if it’s freshly made and mixed with all of your favorite Mexican toppings alongside a bowl of tortilla chips.
Luckily, here in Washington, DC, we have lots of authentic Mexican restaurants that specialize in guacamole which will have you coming back for dip after dip, especially on National Guacamole Day on September 16. You’ll certainly need a second order of chips – or two – to finish off these delectable bowls!
