Restaurant Recipes: El Chico Guacamole

Mama Cuellar, a Mexican immigrant to the States, drew crowds at a country fair outside Dallas, Texas with her mouthwatering tamales. That was way back in 1926.

With the help of her twelve children and a whole ammunition of crowd-pleasing recipes, Mama Cuellar gave the world the El Chico chain of fine Mexican cuisine.

Her legacy continues with a large fan following the world over, and today I’m sharing her famous guacamole recipe with you.
