Recipe: Guacamole with Pistachios

Alex Stupak's recipe from guacamole with pistachios, adpated by the James Beard Foundation

 

When it comes to guacamole upgrades, we used to think that we had seen it all, but we were happily proven wrong at Empellón Cocina, where the house guacamole comes loaded with pistachios. Chef and wd~50 veteran Alex Stupak, who tells us that his favorite flavor is "crunchy", gently toasts the nuts in olive oil, then folds them into a minimal mix of avocado, jalapeno, onion, cilantro, and lime juice. A little toasting oil, infused with flavor of the pistachios, is spooned over the dip before serving.

 

Get the recipe here. The guacamole will also be on offer when the Empellón team cooks at the Beard House on February 4.
