Guac 'N' Roll

DO YOU GUAC ‘N’ ROLL

Last year, you rose to our challenge, with over 120 recipes submitted to our Guac ’n’ Roll contest, presented with Chef’s Roll—and the winning chef received a trip to the Big Game. We can’t wait to do it again—and we think it’s never too early to put on your guac creativity cap. The challenge: A major rock star touring through town asks to try a guac custom-made by you. What ingredient combo will you submit this year? Thirsty for inspiration?

Check out these entries from last year’s top finishers and honorable mentions.
