Chef’s Roll, a website dedicated to profiling chefs and professional cooks, held a contest called Guac and Roll. I decided to make a guacamole in honor of Jimmy Buffet and his Margaritaville restaurants.

A couple of years ago, my husband and I went on a cruise to the Western Caribbean. We decided to eat lunch at Margaritaville while in Grand Caymen. We ordered a bucket of chips with guacamole and two margaritas in their souvenir glasses.

The waitress did warn us that the prices on the menu were not the exact price but there would be an additional charge which was the island prices. When we got the bill for the two drinks and bucket of chips we could only laugh and take our glasses as we paid our $72.00 bill. That was the most expensive appetizer and drinks we have ever had.

Making food at home usually less expensive. Make up a fresh guacamole to serve with chips or your favorite grilled dinner fixings.
